Wellness Center
Arlene Cooper Community Health Center

In response to the continuing health crisis faced by LGBTQ people that has been made only worse by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has disproportionately affected LGBTQ people and, in particular, LGBTQ people of color, the LGBTQ Community Center of Southern Nevada (The Center) has launched a campaign to significantly increase our health and wellness services. We are excited soon to be able to offer for the first time a comprehensive program of services including primary care and a pharmacy that will complement The Center’s existing HIV and STI testing and mental health services.

We are honored that this new healthcare program will be offered at The Center in the Arlene Cooper Community Health Center, which will house the existing MGM Resorts International Health and Wellness Clinic. Everyone who knew Arlene experienced her incredible attention to the care and concern for others, especially LGBTQ people, so it is so fitting that our new Community Health Center will be named for her.

Far too many LGBTQ Americans experience challenges when seeking healthcare, which can intensify whatever worries they might have about their health.
