The State of Mental Health in Henderson, Nevada

Situated in the Mojave Desert, Henderson is Nevada’s second-largest city and a close neighbor to Las Vegas and the Hoover Dam with 290,000 people calling it home. Known for its sunshine, this family-friendly area has some of the best award-winning parks and recreation within the valley. The city is also considered one of the safest as Henderson was recognized by Forbes magazine as the Second safest City in America and Money magazine has placed Henderson on the “Best Places to Live in America” list three times. From low crime and a cost of living that is 4 percent below the national average, Henderson has increased in popularity in the last decade as a place to live, work, play and retire.

One repeating issue in Henderson is the poor medical care as there are many treatment facilities but a shortage of doctors. The state is ranked 49th in the United States for physicians per capita resulting in low doctor-to-patient ratios with only 180 doctors per 100,000 people. Critics blame the low medical reimbursement rate along with several factors such as population growth, an underfunded residency program, an increase of an insured population due to the Affordable Care Act plus a lack of graduate medical education. This does not bode well for the nationwide doctor shortage predicted to at 100,000 by 2030. While the state is trying to bring change to this problem, this is an issue that the state continues to struggle with yearly.
