Dr. James R. Bernhardt is one of the top surgeons for Project Utopia. He spends most of his time between Bahrain, New York, and Venice. Dr. Bernhardt went into medicine for money, and Project Utopia pays him exceedingly well.
Dr. Bernhardt had a stressful job and a miserable life until one day Luciano Camparelli and his daughter came into his office. Camparelli's daughter had a brain tumor and Camparelli assured Dr. Bernhardt that if his daughter did not survive neither would he. When Camparelli's daughter flatlined on the operating table, Dr. Bernhardt erupted and saved her from the jaws of death and successfully removed the tumor. After his legendary surgical skills became known, Project Utopia came calling with a handsome offer.
Although it does not say so in the text, it only makes sense that the Camparelli connection is not over. Internal Affairs is probably watching Dr. Bernhardt very closely if for no other reason in case Camparelli (or more likely an underling) comes knocking again because he is a trusted associate... (Or for a twist Dr. Bernhardt calls in the favor that is owed to him for saving the life of the daughter of a Mafia Don)
