Underinsured North Las Vegas residents hopeful with new clinic opening

Unfortunately, affordable, accessible healthcare isn’t always available to those who need it.

But now, residents in one North Las Vegas neighborhood are celebrating the opening of a new medical clinic.

Homer Baldwin has lived in the area for 10 years. He says he loves it there but that there is a major need for healthcare resources in his neighborhood.
