Since its inception, the University has been a part of the local community and has demonstrated its commitment to help address our State’s most critical health care needs. The University was founded on the principles of teaching, leadership and service. Much of what Touro does in the community goes without fanfare or notice. However, examples of our service to the community include:
- Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities – Developed to address a growing community need, Touro’s Center is the only facility of its kind in Nevada. The Center offers multi-disciplinary, comprehensive diagnostic services, therapy and supportive resources for families dealing with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other developmental issues.
- Health Center at Touro – The University has a full-service, multi-specialty clinical facility, staffed by practicing faculty members. It is open to the community and accepts Medicaid, Medicare and most major insurance. Specialties include rheumatology, primary care, internal medicine, geriatrics, and osteopathic manipulative medicine.
- Stallman Touro Clinic at the Shade Tree Shelter – In 2009, the University opened the clinic at Shade Tree, a shelter for abused and homeless women and children. Faculty and students from Touro staff the clinic on a weekly basis and provide on-going medical care at no cost to the residents of the shelter. Since opening the clinic, the need for emergency care has dramatically decreased.
- Mobile Healthcare Clinic – Launched July 2014, Touro provides free medical care to our community’s homeless population and homeless veterans throughout the Las Vegas Valley. The mobile healthcare clinic will be expanding to include a second vehicle to provide greater service to the community.
