Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC has been a partner of Buckle Up for Life for two years. Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC offers the highest level of care within 10,000 square miles. It is home to the only Designated Pediatric Trauma Center in the state and is the only hospital in Nevada staffed 24 hours a day with in-hospital, Board Certified Pediatric Critical Care and Emergency Medicine Physicians.
“We joined forces with Buckle Up for Life and Toyota 2 years ago because we unfortunately see first-hand in our Trauma Center the devastation to families when a child has been involved in a crash and was not properly restrained,” says Lisa Pacheco, Director of Maternal Child Services for Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC. “We are proud of our partnership to help keep children safely buckled up. If we can make a difference for one family then it’s all worth it!”
