HIV/AIDS Care Services
The goal of the Ryan White Program (RW) Care Services is to provide patient-centered services to individuals living with HIV, link them to the health care services they need, and ensure they remain in care. The RW team includes providers, clinic nurses and medical assistants, RW Eligibility Workers, Nurse Case Managers, a Social Worker, and Community Health Workers.
Rapid stART is a program that provides same-day medication, additional lab testing, and Ryan White Eligibility and Case Management services to people with a new and confirmed HIV-positive diagnosis. Linkage to necessary medical and social care is an essential part of the program. Early treatment for those who are newly diagnosed has been proven to increase quality of life. If you or anyone you know is interested and eligible please call (702) 234-0429.
Infectious Disease Services
Infectious, or contagious, diseases are those caused by microscopic organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. SNCHC providers will diagnose and treat such diseases through the use of antibiotic, antiviral or antifungal medications. Examples of infectious diseases include:
- Hepatitis A, B and C
- Legionnaires’ disease
- Sexually transmitted diseases
- Tuberculosis (TB)
- West Nile Virus
We understand changing the way we eat and view nutrition can be intimidating. Our Registered Dietician (RD) will work with you to better understand how food affects your body and personalized strategies to meet your needs. The RD is trained to work with those with lifelong conditions such as type II diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, metabolic syndrome and HIV.
PrEP and PEP
Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is a prevention method used by people who are HIV-negative and at high risk for being exposed to HIV through sexual contact or injection drug use. When someone is exposed to HIV through sex or injection drug use, these medicines can work to keep the virus from establishing an infection.
Post-exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) refers to the use of antiretroviral drugs for people who are HIV-negative after a single high-risk exposure to stop HIV infection. PEP must be started as soon as possible to be effective — always within 72 hours of a possible exposure — and continued for 4 weeks.
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. SNCHC offers one-on-one counseling services to improve a patient’s overall quality of life.
