Well Care Behavioral and Medical Clinic recently celebrated the opening of its newest location at 5412 Boulder Highway. In partnership with Amerigroup Nevada, a Medicaid-managed care organization with approximately 162,000 Clark County members, the 8,200-square-foot clinic offers wrap-around services aimed at breaking the cycle of despair experienced by people like Michael.
Well Care offers solutions to people struggling with economic and behavioral (substance and/or mental) challenges that impact their overall health. The goal of the new clinic is to “take a person from complete hopelessness back into community living,” said Well Care Services founder and president Marce Casal.
“Psychiatrists are like unicorns in Las Vegas,” said Marce Casal, founder and president of the Well Care Group.
