A new low-cost health clinic is coming to North Las Vegas in hopes of helping an underserved neighborhood.
Hope Christian Health Center announced recently that it had secured a lease for property at Pecos and Craig roads. The group plans on turning the property into a nonprofit clinic to serve patients regardless of insurance status or ability to pay.
The clinic picked the area because both the city of North Las Vegas and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services have called it a medically underserved area.
The clinic is expecting to start accepting patients in February of next year.
Hope Christian Health Center also announced it has a new CEO who has worked on similar project in Los Angeles' Skid Row.
