Southwest Medical

About us

Southwest Medical was founded in 1972 and started the first HMO (Health Plan of Nevada) in the state in 1981. For more than four decades, Southwest Medical has provided quality, compassionate and innovative care to Southern Nevadans. As the largest provider of health services for its sister organization, Health Plan of Nevada, Southwest Medical has led the way in developing outpatient-based strategies to manage patient populations. From 24-hour urgent care centers to convenient e-visit capabilities, Southwest Medical is committed to providing patients with the care they want, when they want it.
