Desert Parkway Behavioral Healthcare Hospital
A one-of-a-kind Las Vegas leadership female team includes the guidance of Allison Zednicek, Chief Executive Officer; Tristan Ivy, Chief Financial Officer; and Cheryl Pena, Chief Nursing Officer. In addition to multiple years of behavioral health hospital administration experience, this trio brings a great deal of professional experience from other markets as well. This includes academic institutions, long-term acute care, not-for-profit community-based programming, health insurance policy planning and physician management.Built upon decades of collective and extensive healthcare and psychiatric experience found across their executive, physician and employee teams, Desert Parkway has established one of the best behavioral hospital systems in the state. By providing services to the vulnerable and underserved populations, as well as those requiring immediate care, they help return patients safely to their homes and communities.
As an organization, they wholeheartedly believe in population care management. This is evidenced by their approach to the case management model they have developed and employed. When appropriate, they attach patients to their own outpatient programs in order to reduce readmissions to the hospital. They have the same case management model for every patient in the outpatient program, ensuring that medications are managed closely, patients are showing symptom improvement and that they are feeling safe every day they go home.
Constructed from the ground up, Desert Parkway has become a premier hospital for inpatient and outpatient behavioral health services in Las Vegas. They are a Joint Commission accredited, 152-bed acute psychiatric facility offering a wide range of treatment options for children as young as 8 years old, adolescents, adults, the elderly and a specialized 23-bed unit for veterans, military, first responders, fire fighters and police.
The medical team and staff are dedicated to providing patients with respect, compassion and dignity. They separate themselves from other behavioral healthcare hospitals through evidence-based and proven group therapy; licensed therapy services for individual, group and family; an on-site teacher to help with school homework assignments; state-of-the-art gym for veterans/first responders; indoor basketball court; pet, music and art therapy; transportation; discharge aftercare planning and bilingual services.
The new outpatient services facility offers lunch and learn events, educational classes and support groups to help raise awareness on mental illnesses and behavioral issues.
Desert Parkway is leading the way in behavioral health as a resource, educator and advocate.
