While Las Vegas hospitals grow incrementally, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic threatens to hurl the market back into a recession, and the last recession took longer to end in the Las Vegas market than in the rest of the country. Intermountain Healthcare's purchase of HealthCare Partners Nevada could change the landscape for providers and possibly health plans if Intermountain pairs its insurance plans with the practice. Some health systems have made quiet moves toward greater physician employment. Las Vegas employers continue to lead the market on quality initiatives by instituting medical homes and onsite clinics.
