In Carson City, Sierra Family Health Center (SFHC) will occupy the lower floor and will provide Family Practice medicine. SFHC has six providers and is considered a medical home for upwards of 6,500 patients. The Las Vegas Facility will house Nevada Health Centers OB/GYN Center which is one of the few places in Clark County where uninsured pregnant patients can receive OB services on a reduced scale based on their income.

Both facilities will be able to serve more patients with the expanded space. Parcels of land have been selected but funding to purchase the land is still needed.
