When Steinberg Diagnostic Medical Imaging Center opens its new offices in the Las Vegas Medical District this summer it will be more than SDMI’s seventh location in Southern Nevada.
It will provide essential services in the emerging hub of medical excellence, generate two-dozen good-paying jobs, and demonstrate SDMI’s nearly 30-year commitment to Las Vegas.
The 14,000-square-foot facility is in the heart of the Medical District and is the first major new construction in the area since UNLV announced its intention to create a medical school and locate it nearby.
“We should all be grateful our community is embracing a medical arts district that will improve health care, strengthen the economy, and continue Las Vegas’ evolution as a city,” said Dr. David Steinberg who with his father, Dr. Leon Steinberg, and business partner and friend, Dr. Mark Winkler, opened the first SDMI office in 1988.
“Our next boom has to be something besides the resort industry — and I am confident it will be.”
That faith in Las Vegas comes from being part of one of the city’s pioneering families. Leon Steinberg came to Southern Nevada in the late 1950s to create from scratch the radiology department at the then-new Sunrise Hospital.
“Sunrise vastly improved patient care in Las Vegas, and my father was proud of being part of that,” David Steinberg said. “He always looked for ways to make things better — for the patient and for the community.”
For SDMI patients that means being able to see talented medical professionals and have access to the latest technology at convenient locations across Southern Nevada. Once there, they find examination and waiting rooms designed around them, billing and other services handled in-house, and even a wall of plants that will greet visitors at the new Medical District center.
“Everything we do is patient-focused,” David Steinberg said. “Good medicine is good business.”
Patients have responded to the approach, with SDMI earning 96.7% patient satisfaction. This has allowed SDMI to engage in a strategic, years-long expansion across the Las Vegas Valley.
Even as it has grown into a large company with nearly 400 employees, SDMI remains true to the values of the small, family-run business it was when it started.
From having the most energetic people at the Komen Southern Nevada Race for the Cure to Bagging Childhood Hunger at Three Square and at many good causes in between, SDMI associates can be found volunteering almost every weekend.
“We hire caring people and that is reflected in the excellent patient care at our centers and in how much we give back,” David Steinberg said. “I can think of no better legacy for SDMI.”
