(LAS VEGAS; October 19, 2011) – St. Rose Dominican Hospitals and K|E Centers for Advanced Medicine are announcing a collaboration to bring personalized executive physical examinations to southern Nevada.
Set to launch in late fall, The K|E Executive Physical brings the executive physical concept to the Las Vegas valley. Executives – and southern Nevadans concerned about their health – currently travel hundreds of miles in search of these specialized exams. They now have the convenience of staying or receiving these services in Las Vegas, and enjoying the opportunities that the city of Las Vegas offers.
The K|E Executive Physical is a medical exam that will focus on and assess the health risk stratification of each patient, identify problems and work to mitigate those risks. These risks include the patient’s lifestyle, genetic history, medical history, and screening for cardiovascular, pulmonary and endocrine problems. These services will be performed in a new, state-of-the art, patient-friendly environment with all ancillary services under one roof. Patients will be evaluated by the region’s finest physicians and specialists in an exclusive and intimate environment.
The K|E Executive Physical will be in a new, approximately 20,000-square-foot clinic space directly across the street from St. Rose Dominican Hospitals – San Martín Campus. Services for The K|E Executive Physical will be housed in K|E’s medical clinic, but will be separate and exclusive from K|E Centers for Advanced Medicine’s private practice. The Center will open in mid November 2011. Designed to evoke the ambiance and experience of a high-end spa, The K|E Executive Physical is a comprehensive executive physical unlike anything currently offered. The K|E Executive Physical experience will be that of an outpatient destination clinic designed with the busy and discerning executive – and those patients serious about their health – in mind.
The K|E Executive Physical will be an extensive evaluation of a person’s health status and includes quality time spent with a physician reviewing medical history, discussing health issues and concerns, with a focus on emphasizing prevention, early disease detection, and recommendations for appropriate follow-up care.
“We fully expect that The K|E Executive Physical will not only be sought out by southern Nevadans but by discerning patients across the U.S. who are invested in their overall well being,” said Rod Davis, president and CEO of St. Rose Dominican Hospitals and senior vice president of operations, CHW Nevada. “We are collaborating with some of the region’s finest physicians and specialists, each well regarded for their clinical excellence. This new diagnostic and treatment offering will create a consolidated, efficient resource for specialty care in the area of annual executive physical examinations and will add a new dimension to the high quality medical services available in southern Nevada.”
As part of The K|E Executive Physical, patients will receive a full range of seamless, highly personalized care in a single setting. The facility will feature the best diagnostic equipment, allowing physicians to help patients focus on prevention, early detection and intervention.
Drs. Robert Koblin and Marc Edelstein, the founders and directors of K|E Centers for Advanced Medicine, are thought leaders in their respective specialties in cardiology and gastroenterology.
“When we began to research areas and patient populations that could immediately benefit from The K|E Executive Physical and these quality diagnostic resources, Las Vegas presented a great opportunity,” said Dr. Koblin. “We hope that by introducing this service to the community, we will create a value added experience for patients seeking these highly specialized and comprehensive exams. We expect patients from not just the Las Vegas valley – but from across the United States – to seek out these services.”
