A Message From Las Vegas Mayor,
CAROLYN G. GOODMAN

Welcome to the Las Vegas Medical District! As your mayor, I am committed to creating a world-class city. Having quality medical care available is an essential component to making this happen. The future of medicine for our city will also determine the overall quality of life we have in southern Nevada. Along with Councilman Brian Knudsen and Councilman Cedric Crear, who represent portions of the medical district as well as the other members of the City Council, we want to make the medical landscape of this community the best it can be. We are committed to supporting and continuing the good work being done now and enhancing it to be on par with great institutions found in other major U.S. metropolitan areas. Our city should have the same level of care and services offered in other great communities. We are building a world-class city one day at a time. I invite you to click through this website to learn more about all that is happening today and what is in the future for Las Vegas medicine. I am so grateful to all those who share our common vision of making our city an even better place to live.

A message from Las Vegas City Councilman, Ward 1,
Brian Knudsen

Foundational to personal and community wellbeing, health is the new wealth, particularly as the pandemic of 2020 has triggered a reprioritization of values. As a parent of two small children and a representative of the constituents of Ward 1, I am very grateful for the work being done in the Las Vegas Medical District (LVMD) that benefits all who call Southern Nevada home. Thanks to our LVMD partners, both quality and access to first-rate medical care in our community is growing exponentially. With the UNLV School of Medicine at its center, the LVMD inches closer to establishing a true Academic Medical Center, an important and essential component of any thriving metropolitan area. And with top-notch hospitals like UMC and Valley Hospital providing world-class care to both residents and our city’s many visitors, Las Vegas stays true to its commitment to deliver the best experience possible. Read on to learn more about healthcare services and providers within your LVMD.

A message from Las Vegas City Councilman, Ward 5,
Cedric Crear

The Las Vegas Medical District is a point of pride for all Las Vegans as the home of two major hospitals, the UNLV School of Medicine and ancillary medical providers, that combined, create a robust medical services infrastructure for Southern Nevada. And as the representative of Ward 5, I am particularly proud of the fact that Symphony Park, home of the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, is considered a part of the District. The Clinic is a leader in brain health not just locally but globally. And it provides expert diagnosis and treatment for individuals and families living with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases; multiple sclerosis; and other brain diseases. Cleveland Clinic offers a continuum of care with no-cost opportunities for the community to participate in education and research, including disease prevention studies and clinical trials of promising new medications. Most of all, treatment and research performed at Cleveland Clinic provides hope for families and their caregivers – medicine at its most powerful.
