Program Overview

Our program is part of HCA’s Sunrise Health GME Consortium and is based at Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center, located in the southwest area of Las Vegas.  Southern Hills Hospital is a 262-bed, full service, acute care facility and is the “home base” for most of the family medicine inpatient and subspecialty experiences.

Southern Hills Hospital currently houses ACGME-accredited Family Medicine, Transitional Year, Psychiatry, and Neurology programs as well as fellowships in GI and Addiction Medicine. 

Our sister hospital, Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, serves as our rotation site for pediatrics inpatient and pediatrics emergency medicine.  Our family medicine continuity clinic is based out of Nevada Health Centers (NVHC), the largest federally qualified health center (FQHC) provider in Nevada.  In conjunction with NVHC, we provide preventative and comprehensive care for our pediatric, adult, and geriatric population.  We also concentrate in areas such as women’s health, school-based healthcare, care for the homeless and a focus on addiction medicine.

Mission statement

The Family Medicine Program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders. As a part of HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.

This program is designed to offer residents a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents’ perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values and ideals.
