Veteran care begin in Las Vegas in 1972 with an Outpatient Clinic in Henderson, Nevada as a satellite of the Reno VA Medical Center. In 1980, the VA relocated to West Charleston Boulevard in Las Vegas and functioning as an Independent Outpatient Clinic.
The Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense began a joint venture, constructing a hospital at the Nellis Air Force Base. The hospital opened in 1994 and was renamed the Mike O’Callaghan Federal Hospital (MOFH) in 1996. Together the VA and the US Air Force manage 114 beds total in this facility.
In August 2012, VASNHS opened a one-million square-feet comprehensive medical center in North Las Vegas. It is the first VA hospital to be built in the United States since the end of the Gulf War. This facility is equipped to provide 90-bed inpatient, 120-bed extended and skilled nursing care as well as various outpatient specialty care services. In addition, four new Primary Care Clinics were opened throughout Las Vegas Metropolitan area to meet primary care and mental health needs, allowing Veterans to continue to receive primary care services closer to home.
