Las Vegas, NV  – March marked a significant milestone for, The Pavilion, the leading behavioral health unit at Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center, as it celebrates five years of providing unparalleled psychiatric care to the community. Since its inception, The Pavilion has demonstrated a commitment to excellence, innovation, and compassionate care, making it a beacon of hope for individuals and families struggling with mental health challenges. 

In honor of the 5-year anniversary we are welcoming the government officials, community members and the media to attend an open house Friday April 5, 2024 from 9am to 11am. 

Established in 2019, The Pavilion has grown exponentially, evolving from a modest 14-bed unit exclusively serving geriatric populations to an expansive 80-bed facility catering to individuals aged 12 and older. This expansion has enabled us to meet the increasing demand for high-quality behavioral health services in our community, ensuring that individuals of all ages receive the care and support they need to thrive. 

One of the hallmarks of The Pavilion is its outstanding Psychiatry Residency Program, which attracts top talent and fosters the development of future leaders in the field of psychiatry. Under the guidance of our esteemed medical directors, Dr. Bhushan and Dr. Freedman, and a team of dedicated healthcare professionals, The Pavilion has garnered recognition as the premier destination for comprehensive behavioral health care in the southwest Las Vegas Valley. 

"Our commitment to providing exceptional care extends beyond the walls of our facility," said Allison Zednicek Chief Operations Officer of Behavioral Health at Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center. "Our staff and leaders actively participate in various community events, including health fairs, school events, and fundraisers, to raise awareness and promote education about mental health. We believe that by engaging with the community, we can reduce stigma and empower individuals to seek the help they need."
