Late last month, Silver State Health expanded its mental health and primary care services with the opening of its second location. It celebrated with an official grand opening event and ribbon-cutting ceremony in partnership with the Latin Chamber of Commerce. The nonprofit community health center acquired Bilingual Behavioral Services in an effort to merge their missions and provide quality behavioral and primary care resources for vulnerable Las Vegas populations.
Representatives from the offices of Gov. Steve Sisolak, Congresswoman Dina Titus, U.S. Sen. Jacky Rosen and the Latin Chamber of Commerce were in attendance and presented Silver State Health’s CEO and Executive Director Ryan Linden with proclamations to commemorate the event and acknowledge Silver State Health’s efforts to improve the health care landscape in the city.
“It’s really our vision for our clinics to become the leading integrated primary care and behavioral health practices here in the city and to really drive a holistic care model for all patients in the community,” Linden said. “It is Silver State Health’s wish to provide high-quality health care to all peoples of Las Vegas, regardless of their ability to pay, what language they speak or where they come from. They have a destination with us here at Silver State Health where they will be treated as family with compassionate care.”
Now, with more than 20 health care practitioners in various specialties, including pediatric therapists, social workers and primary care physicians, Silver State Health continues its mission to treat patients of all ages, ethnicities and socioeconomic statuses to ensure no Nevadan is left behind when it comes to mental and physical health. Silver State Health, a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), aims to remove barriers preventing patients from receiving quality medical care from translation to transportation services and offers sliding fee scales in a culturally inclusive environment to ensure accessibility for all.
