Las Vegas, NV - Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center is expanding mental health services for the Las Vegas community with the opening of outpatient therapy.
The services are being offered by the hospital's behavioral health unit, the Pavilion. The 45,000 square foot inpatient unit opened in March of 2019 and treats a variety of mental health disorders for people age 11 and older.
"We know there are thousands of Las Vegans suffering from mental illnesses," said Alexis Mussi, Chief Executive Officer, Southern Hills Hospital. "Our entire goal of opening the Pavilion, and now offering these outpatient services, is to get people access to the help they need."
In an effort to continue expanding services to meet our community's needs, the Pavilion will now be offering intensive outpatient therapy. Participants in the outpatient program will come voluntarily as they transition from the hospital, their home, or by physician referral. The outpatient therapy program offers group therapy sessions multiple days a week.

"There is a huge need for outpatient services in Las Vegas," said Jennifer Riedel, Vice President of Behavioral Health at Southern Hills Hospital. "We believe by providing outpatient therapy, we can help stabilize our patients in the least restrictive setting and offer a full continuum of care. It's why we felt so strongly about getting these services offered."
The intensive outpatient therapy program is appropriate for a variety of mental health issues including, psychiatric disorders, depression or anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, mood swings, and self-injury.
