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 Councilwoman Lois Tarkanian and Councilman Ricki Y. Barlow, 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.
The Las Vegas Medical District is my passion. I am thrilled to see a vision that I started talking about back when I first took office taking flight! This is important. The city has produced a comprehensive master plan for the Las Vegas Medical District. We are creating a home for the UNLV Medical School and are actively recruiting development and new business into the area. Because it is critical to attracting and retaining the finest physicians to serve in our community, we are also working diligently to help facilitate a much needed increase in medical reimbursement rates. This is the only way to keep our quality healthcare providers in Las Vegas, to keep the newly trained providers from our medical schools here and to recruit new providers from other states.
As the Councilman for Ward 5, which includes a portion of the Las Vegas Medical District, I am excited to see the growth of medical services for those in our community. To have the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health at Symphony Park means that groundbreaking research and care will be provided to all of our residents right in the heart of the city. These types of projects will spur more development in our community, which will create new jobs and investment. This is just one example of the amazing work being done in our district. I am extremely proud to represent this area.
The LVMD is an amazing collaboration and so needed for this community. Once completed it will improve access to care, and advance health care innovation and research for years to come.
As the anchor hospital of the Las Vegas Medical District, UMC provides the highest level of care in the state, with the only Level I Trauma Center and only Designated Pediatric Trauma Center.
UNLV has a decade-long history of educating dental and nursing students in the Las Vegas Medical District, and we are excited by the prospect of placing our medical school in this area.
