St. Rose Dominican Hospitals Collaborates with K│E Centers for Advanced Medicine to Provide Personalized Executive Physicals

October 19, 2011 Leave a comment

(LAS VEGAS;  October 19, 2011) – St. Rose Dominican Hospitals and K│E Centers for Advanced Medicine are announcing a collaboration to bring personalized executive physical examinations to southern Nevada.

Set to launch in late fall, The K│E Executive Physical brings the executive physical concept to the Las Vegas valley. Executives – and southern Nevadans concerned about their health – currently travel hundreds of miles in search of these specialized exams. They now have the convenience of staying or receiving these services in Las Vegas, and enjoying the opportunities that the city of Las Vegas offers.

The K│E Executive Physical is a medical exam that will focus on and assess the health risk stratification of each patient, identify problems and work to mitigate those risks. These risks include the patient’s lifestyle, genetic history, medical history, and screening for cardiovascular, pulmonary and endocrine problems. These services will be performed in a new, state-of-the art, patient-friendly environment with all ancillary services under one roof. Patients will be evaluated by the region’s finest physicians and specialists in an exclusive and intimate environment.

The K│E Executive Physical will be in a new, approximately 20,000-square-foot clinic space directly across the street from St. Rose Dominican Hospitals – San Martín Campus. Services for The K│E Executive Physical will be housed in K│E’s medical clinic, but will be separate and exclusive from K│E Centers for Advanced Medicine’s private practice. The Center will open in mid November 2011.

Designed to evoke the ambiance and experience of a high-end spa, The K│E Executive Physical is a comprehensive executive physical unlike anything currently offered. The K│E Executive Physical

experience will be that of an outpatient destination clinic designed with the busy and discerning executive – and those patients serious about their health – in mind.

The K│E Executive Physical will be an extensive evaluation of a person’s health status and includes quality time spent with a physician reviewing medical history, discussing health issues and concerns, with a focus on emphasizing prevention, early disease detection, and recommendations for appropriate follow-up care.

“We fully expect that The K│E Executive Physical will not only be sought out by southern Nevadans but by discerning patients across the U.S. who are invested in their overall well being,” said Rod Davis, president and CEO of St. Rose Dominican Hospitals and senior vice president of operations, CHW Nevada. “We are collaborating with some of the region’s finest physicians and specialists, each well regarded for their clinical excellence. This new diagnostic and treatment offering will create a consolidated, efficient resource for specialty care in the area of annual executive physical examinations and will add a new dimension to the high quality medical services available in southern Nevada.”

As part of The K│E Executive Physical, patients will receive a full range of seamless, highly personalized care in a single setting. The facility will feature the best diagnostic equipment, allowing physicians to help patients focus on prevention, early detection and intervention.

Drs. Robert Koblin and Marc Edelstein, the founders and directors of K│E Centers for Advanced Medicine, are thought leaders in their respective specialties in cardiology and gastroenterology.

“When we began to research areas and patient populations that could immediately benefit from The K│E Executive Physical and these quality diagnostic resources, Las Vegas presented a great opportunity,” said Dr. Koblin. “We hope that by introducing this service to the community, we will create a value added experience for patients seeking these highly specialized and comprehensive exams. We expect patients from not just the Las Vegas valley – but from across the United States – to seek out these services.”

Henderson Police Has A Cure for Unwanted Medicines

Residents can dispose of unnecessary drugs at drop boxes at police stations

FROM THE OFFICE OF THE City of Henderson CHIEF OF POLICE, 223 Lead Street, Henderson, NV, 89015

Henderson, Nev. – Residents looking for a safe way to dispose of unwanted or expired prescriptions can now discard the drugs in drop boxes at five Henderson Police locations.

 The bright yellow prescription drug drop boxes were installed in the lobbies of the three Henderson Police stations, the Henderson Detention Center and the Community Relations Unit inside the Galleria at Sunset. The secure boxes will be emptied regularly and the drugs incinerated.

 The drop boxes not only give people a secure, legal and anonymous way to safely dispose of unused medications, but it also helps keep the drugs out of the hands of those who might abuse them and keeps the drugs from going into the water system.

 “We encourage all residents to look through their medicine cabinets and join us to safely dispose of any old or unneeded prescription medications,” said Henderson Police Chief Jutta Chambers. “I know that this effort has the potential to prevent a tragedy.”

 The drop boxes are locked and secured to the floor at each location. The Clark County Water Reclamation District donated the drop boxes and had them installed at the Henderson locations.

 Residents can dispose of the medicines in the drop boxes located in the lobbies at the follow locations:

 Henderson Police Main Station, 223 Lead Street

  • Henderson Police West Substation, 300 S. Green Valley Parkway
  • North Community Henderson Police Station, 225 E. Sunset Road

The three police stations’ lobbies are open every day from 7:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.

  • Henderson Police Community Relations Unit, inside the Galleria at Sunset, 1300 W. Sunset Road, open weekdays from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
  • Henderson Detention Center, 18 E. Basic Road, lobby open every day from 8 a.m. until noon and 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.
  • The drop boxes are located in the lobbies of the buildings, so residents may discard unneeded, unwanted or expired prescriptions with no questions asked and no forms to complete, and the drop boxes will be available on an ongoing basis.

     We ask that people do not use the boxes to dispose of needles or syringes, liquids or powders. Also we ask the pills be in some sort of container or bag. Please do not dispose of loose pills in the drop box.

     Henderson Police had a one-day prescription drug drop off last year. The event was so successful we were looking for a way to provide a permanent way for residents to drop off the medications.
