Dr. Mitchell Forman came to Southern Nevada in 2004 to take a position as founding dean of Touro University Nevada College of Osteopathic Medicine.
"I moved from Fort Worth, Texas, where we just had a wonderful life," Forman says. "I had a great job and I never thought I would leave there, except for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of starting a medical school."
As it turned out, overseeing the new osteopathic medical school was only part of Forman's work in Southern Nevada over the past dozen years. He has been an active and vocal advocate for medical education, patient education and community outreach here and served Southern Nevada's medical community as an officer or board member of organizations that included the Clark County Medical Society.
Last week, Forman, 69, left his full-time position as dean of Touro University Nevada College of Osteopathic Medicine. We recently talked with the board-certified rheumatologist about the evolution of health care here that he has witnessed during his tenure at Touro.
Review-Journal: What's the biggest change you've noticed in Southern Nevada's medical landscape since your arrival?
Forman: I think the community's willingness to address some of the things we knew were wrong with the health care infrastructure in this community.
...
Forman: It's not just about numbers only, obviously. It's also about quality.
...
Forman: I think when you open up a brand-new medical school it's all about credibility.
...
Forman: Now, with the Affordable Care Act, we have significant numbers of people who, at least to some degree, have some insurance, (but) who are finding it challenging to find physicians who have time and can fit them into their practice.
...
Forman: We (Forman's wife, Pearl, is a physician assistant at Touro) are here now to stay.

Start with health care's business model here, said Dr. Mitchell Forman, dean of Touro University Nevada, a medical school in Henderson.

The state ranks near the bottom in provider-to-patient ratios, particularly in family medicine and geriatrics, Forman said. Where you have fewer generalists to treat and monitor chronic conditions, you have disjointed care. That can mean tests get repeated unnecessarily, or preventable complications aren't caught early.
Southern Nevada also attracts swarms of retirees, resulting in a sicker population, Forman said.
...
Her physicians gave her a 2 percent chance of surviving, but Forman insisted they do what they could to save her. She languished in intensive care for 10 days before she died.
"Who wants to take that 2 percent chance away from their mother? Forman said.
...
The schools could add to the number of primary-care providers, including geriatricians, who can provide coherent, holistic care, Forman said.
But it's important that the new schools and existing programs boost training of care for the terminally ill.
"We need to let them know early on about the ethical principles surrounding end-of-life care," Forman said. "What's a good death? What's a bad death?
...
"The team of health care providers needs to know what the patient's wishes are," Forman said.
...
That's a good thing, Forman said.
"If you're not going to change the eventuality, the patient may just want to focus on pain management," he said.
