HealthCare Partners, a division of DaVita Medical Group and part of DaVita Inc. (NYSE: DVA) providing primary, specialty and urgent care in Southern Nevada, is bringing innovative, senior-focused primary care to Southern Nevada with the introduction of 23 unique clinics across Las Vegas, Pahrump and Mesquite.
According to Nevada Business, the clinics, named myGeneration clinics, are staffed by physicians and care teams who have been specifically trained to understand and care for the unique health needs of people 65 and older on Medicare. Twenty of the 23 clinics are in operation now, with three additional myGeneration clinics expected to be introduced in October in time for the Medicare Annual Election Period, which runs from October 15 to December 7.
The number of seniors in Nevada is expected to grow over the next several years to account for nearly one-third of the state’s population by 2030 according to state demographer Jeff Hardcastle. HealthCare Partners currently serves more than 90,000 seniors in Southern Nevada.
“We have a long history of serving seniors in our community,” said Mark Price, market president at HealthCare Partners. “That history and depth of understanding seniors’ unique needs has allowed us to create the kind of experience we know seniors want from their healthcare provider – one where they are listened to and get the time they need with their doctor; where their care is coordinated among primary care and specialty care, and where there are resources available to help them achieve their health goals. The myGeneration clinics are a simpler, improved model for seniors, providers and our care teams.”
