Nevada Health Centers, Inc. – Health Care for the Homeless

Nevada Health Centers’ (NVHC) HCH Program provides primary health care, case management, outreach, and referral services through its Las Vegas Outreach Clinic (LVOC), Downtown Outreach Clinic (DOC), and a mobile outreach van. Services are provided for people who are homeless and at-risk of homelessness in the greater Las Vegas/Clark County area. Nevada Health Centers operates clinics throughout Nevada, including WIC, mobile mammography and mobile dental vans.

Services

Comprehensive primary medical services are provided through two shelter-based clinics. LVOC is staffed by a fulltime physician, medical assistant, and receptionist, and DOC is staffed by a PA, medical assistant, and receptionist. Both clinics have a lab and on-site dispensary. The HCH Outreach Team is based at the LVOC clinic. The clinics offer a full range of medical services and referrals to one of NVHC’s three CHC clinic sites in Las Vegas, all of which offer pediatric and adult medicine, prenatal and postpartum care, STD and HIV/AIDS screening/referrals, TB testing, senior care, referral for housing, SA/MH counseling, legal assistance, job services, government assistance, and more. OB/GYN care is offered through the NVHC OB/GYN clinic in North Las Vegas. Referrals are arranged for dental care, optometry, and medical specialties. Workers assist patients with referrals to County, State, and Federal agencies.

Linkages

Both HCH clinics and the outreach team work closely with shelters, local homeless service providers, and county and city agencies, including the county hospital, to provide a continuum of care for patients. NVHC has close working relationships with local volunteer dentists and optometrists, Las Vegas Metro Police Department, and other outreach organizations.
