Valley Hospital Medical Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, offers a wide range of services, including neurological, cardiovascular, and surgical. Founded in 1972, the hospital established Southern Nevada’s first air ambulance service. Since 2014, the hospital changed its focus, removing the labor and delivery, NICU, nursery and gynecology units to officially become a Behavioral Health Unit. The hospital includes a neurology residency program, as well as an inpatient acute rehabilitation unit. As part of the Valley Health System, Valley Hospital Medical Center is one of six hospitals that serve Las Vegas and Southern Nevada. With over 1,233 physicians on staff, Valley Hospital Medical Center is a 306-bed facility.

Known as The Entertainment Capital of the World, Las Vegas can be recognized for its award- winning casino-hotels, nightlife, and gambling. The city offers a very active area known as “The Strip” which attracts a steady stream of revelers, being one of the world’s most visited tourist destinations. If gambling is not your thing, the sprawling suburbs outside of downtown are known for their family-friendly communities and activities. The area is surrounded by mountain ranges on all sides, providing plenty of exciting hiking, camping, and desert-based outdoor exploration. Located on the floor of the Mojave Desert, the area is prone to flash flooding while also being the third most seismically active state in the US. The climate is hot, as is expected in the desert, with mild and pleasant winters. Boasting an average of 310 days of sunshine, be sure to come equipped with plenty of sunscreen. If you love the nightlife and the desert experience that Las Vegas has to offer, be sure to consider Valley Hospital Medical Center for your next contract.
