The LGBTQ Center of Southern Nevada (The Center) opened its Arlene Cooper Community Health Center in 2013 to offer local communities a safe and comfortable place for HIV and STI testing and counseling.

Over the years, The Center’s leadership saw a growing need for additional medical resources to serve the LGBTQ+ and downtown Las Vegas communities and embarked on a capital campaign in 2021 to turn the health center into a full-service medical clinic.

Sands has provided critical funding to help The Center achieve its goal of expanding community health services, making contributions through Sands Cares, the company’s community engagement program in 2021 and 2022.

“The Cooper Health Center has the potential to fill a great void in the community by providing compassionate and much-needed health care services for a number of residents,” said Ron Reese, senior vice president of global communications and corporate affairs, who spearheads corporate responsibility for the company. “Supporting this effort aligns with one of Sands’ highest priorities – to build the capacity of critical service providers to make more profound impact in the way they address pressing needs and support underserved people. The Center has had great vision in the way they’ve approached the buildout and planned path forward for the Cooper Health Center, which is why we’ve continued to fund this endeavor.”
