Southern Nevada seniors will now be able to experience convenient access to quality health care with the opening of not one, not two, but three new Intermountain Healthcare clinics today (Monday, Dec 5). All three are Intermountain myGeneration clinics that specialize in primary care for those 65 years of age and older. The clinics also bring six new providers to our community.
“Our caregivers at these three new clinics will provide care including overall preventative medicine for one of the most high-need populations in our communities: our seniors,” said Dr. Paul Krakovitz, Region President of Intermountain Healthcare. “We’re excited and honored to be able to provide the highest quality of care for our aging population and ensure they have the resources to be well.”
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Nevada’s 65 and older population is projected to increase more than 260 percent between 2000 and 2030. Intermountain recognizes that there will be a continued, growing need to offer both primary and specialty care.
The three new clinics, all serving the Henderson area, are among over 60 Intermountain Healthcare clinics throughout Southern Nevada, including specialty care and InstaCare locations. Intermountain Healthcare’s myGeneration Clinics offer longer appointment time spent with your doctor and personal attention at every visit. They also have same-day appointments, on-staff specialists and a focus of preventative care.
The new Horizon myGeneration Clinic is located at 771 E. Horizon Drive, Suite 140. This clinic is the largest of the three new clinics, with 6,200 square feet and 12 exam rooms.
“The Horizon clinic is conveniently located for area residents who seek primary care and preventative care options,” said Dr. Elbert Xu. “And, as an Intermountain patient, you have access to additional specialists within the health system should you need them.”
The new Whitney Ranch myGeneration Clinic, at 1520 W. Sunset Road Suite 100, features 4,935 square feet of clinic space and includes 10 exam rooms.
“Intermountain Healthcare is committed to ensuring access to quality care,” said Dr. Jarom Spencer. “This includes not only being able to secure a primary care provider but maintaining regular visits and communication with the clinic team as well.”
The third new clinic, the Sunset myGeneration Clinic, is located at 2891 N. Green Valley Parkway. This clinic is 4,550 square feet with nine exam rooms.
“Having clinics based within our communities where people live and work contributes to improving not only the well-being of individuals but overall community health,” said Dr. Kevin Urmaza. “The more people routinely utilize their primary care provider, the more likely they are able to avoid needing to go to emergency rooms and/or be admitted into the hospital.”
All three locations will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m Monday through Friday (excluding holidays) and will accept Medicare Advantage and original Medicare plans, among others. Grand opening events are currently being planned and may include a ribbon cutting, tours of the new facilities, provider meet-and-greets and more.
