Las Vegas, NV - (September 5th, 2017) – The Well Care Group is proud to offer FREE depression screenings every Friday in the month of September from 1p-3p at the Las Vegas Clinic in observance of Suicide Prevention Month.

A Bet on Behavioral Health

“Psychiatrists are like unicorns in Las Vegas,” said Marce Casal, founder and president of the Well Care Group. Yet Casal has managed to find two of them, along with other health care professionals, to staff the new Well Care Behavioral and Medical Clinic located at Tropicana Avenue and Boulder Highway. Well Care has partnered with Amerigroup Nevada, a managed care organization, with approximately 162,000 members in Clark County, to reduce the fragmentation of care by providing wrap-around behavioral health services to members with behavioral and mental issues.

Gamble on house calls pays off for pharmacy

Before our company opened its first store, the No. 1 question we had to overcome was, “How does Well Care Pharmacy compete with the giant chain pharmacies?”

To tackle this challenge, we decided to focus our business model on free delivery service anywhere in Las Vegas or Henderson. Whether Well Care Pharmacy makes money on a transaction or not, we will deliver to anyone who needs the service.
