Family Medicine Program Director Welcome

Maureen Strohm, MD, FAAFP

Greetings and welcome to HCA’s Sunrise Health GME Consortium/Southern Hills Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program. I am delighted that you are exploring opportunities to train with us as HCA continues to expand its Las Vegas GME residencies and fellowships, in support of our mission – “Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.”

Our program is based at Southern Hills Hospital in southwest Las Vegas for our inpatient and subspecialty rotations. Nevada Health Centers (NVHC), the largest federally qualified health center (FQHC) provider in Nevada, is our primary partner for our Family Medicine Practice, with the Martin Luther King Family Health Center and other NVHC health centers in Las Vegas for rotations in outpatient pediatrics, women’s healthcare, school-based healthcare and care for the homeless.

We need you to be part of the solution! Nevada ranks 49th in the US for access to primary care physicians. Our family medicine program will prepare you to serve our communities in Las Vegas and beyond; positions with NVHC after graduation are eligible for federal loan repayment. Our FM program brings us closer to that solution for Las Vegas, with expanding opportunities as we prepare to launch our Addiction Medicine Fellowship in 2021.

This is a unique opportunity to join our family medicine residency team – a chance to draw on your own creativity and experiences as we work together. Our slogan, “learning through caring” reflects Southern Hills Hospital’s mission of high quality, cost-effective and compassionate care – for the patients we serve and for the physicians we train together with Nevada Health Centers in their mission “to provide access to quality healthcare services throughout Nevada.”

We offer innovative approaches to residency training in an extraordinary, collaborative environment to provide you with the tools, skills and experiences to be an outstanding family physician, patient advocate and leader – in our hospital, our community, and beyond. We have assembled a highly experienced team of clinicians and medical educators to guide our residency programs and medical student clerkships to ensure the highest quality educational experience.

Family Medicine Program Mission

In partnership with Nevada Health Centers, we are committed to train excellent Family Physicians to provide comprehensive, compassionate and evidence-based care to our patients, their families and our community in a collaborative, innovative learning environment.
