    Nevada Health Centers Receive 11.2 Million in Stimulus Funds to Build Health Centers in Carson City and Las Vegas


    Nevada Health Centers, Inc. (NVHC) received $11.2 million dollars for the construction of two new health facilities; one in Carson City and the other in Las Vegas.

    The two new health centers will bring construction jobs to both Carson City and Las Vegas. Both cities have been hard hit by the recession and the jobs will provide some much needed relief. The facilities will be two stories with administrative offices on the upper floor and health services on the lower floor.

    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. Presently there are six OB/GYN physicians working with the OB/GYN program in Las Vegas and the need for these services continues to grow. 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.

    Healthcare bill, if passed will create millions of jobs because facilities like this will have to be built across the country and staffed. Working people earn money and buy products and services, pay taxes that will create more jobs and fix the broken economy.

    Add to the construction jobs the staff for all new health care facilities. Health care reform is a giant benefit not only to health care but to the economy, too.

    Are you libs really this dense? The government can not create sustainable jobs. Building something is not a sustainable job. Congratulations you got someone a job for a whole two fucking years. Most people are looking for a little more job security than that.

    That's absurd.

    The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services employs thousands.

    The Social Security Administration employs thousands.

    If anything, government jobs are criticized because they never go away.

    Many people will be happy with a two year job, especially in the field of construction. How long do you think a construction job usually lasts? Once the brick and mortor are in place others will have long term jobs: custodial services, doctors, nurses, clerks, technicians, and health care will be available to more Americans.
    Once our nation lead the world in miles of track, today we crowd into airports miles from our homes, and land at airports miles from our destination. Light and heavy RR construction, connecting urban centers will provide long term jobs with the added benefit of reducing our need for foreign oil.
    Your first sentence suggests you pride yourself on being a conservative, and then you go ahead and post a thoughtless comment as if it were true without any evidence. Many conservatives actually think and you do all of those who do a disservice posting such foolishness.

    Can you please cite the section of the Healthcare bill, as yet unpassed and as yet not finalized, that defines the funds to be spent on medical facilities?

    Breaking windows forcing their replacement stimulates the economy too.

    Shall we go start breaking them?
