Las Vegas HEALS, a nonprofit membership-based healthcare association, announced that it recently welcomed three new members to its Board of Directors: Diane Fearon, Dave Marlon, and Alexandra Silver.
“These new additions to our Board of Directors are invaluable,” said Doug Geinzer, CEO of Las Vegas HEALS. “They bring decades of experience with excellent reputations in the industry and will help us move forward in achieving our goals to improve the quality of healthcare in southern Nevada.”
Fearon is the vice president for philanthropy and strategic partnerships at Nathan Adelson Hospice, the largest nonprofit hospice in southern Nevada, caring for an average of 450 hospice and palliative care patients daily. Prior to her joining the senior leadership team, she served as the Admissions and Transitions Optimization Program (ATOP) director at HealthInsight Nevada. ATOP is a four-year, $17 million grant funded by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
Marlon currently serves as the American Addiction Center (AAC)’s regional vice president of Nevada, overseeing all treatment operations in the state, including Solutions Recovery and the Desert Hope Treatment Facility. Prior to joining AAC, Marlon was the president and co-founder of Solutions Recovery, Inc., an alcohol and drug treatment center that is accredited by the Joint Commission. Since 2005, he has delivered treatment to hundreds of people struggling with chemical dependency and mental illness.
Silver currently serves as executive director for Clark County Medical Society. With more than 20 years in operations, program management, and event planning in the nonprofit and private sector as well as numerous years of nonprofit leadership experience, Silver has brought success to the long-standing organization with her remarkable guidance. The Clark County Medical Society advocates for physicians and their patients in southern Nevada, encouraging the delivery of quality healthcare within the community.
Las Vegas HEALS offers several networking opportunities for members to meet other healthcare professionals and businesses that support healthcare. The monthly Healthcare Happy Hour is the largest networking event attended by physicians, healthcare administrators, allied health professionals and those who support the growth of healthcare. The organization recently relocated its offices to the Roseman University Summerlin Campus at One Breakthrough Way. The new space is situated across from Roseman University’s 98-seat auditorium, which the organization will be able to use. The future plans include bringing healthcare industry leaders together for a speaker series on various significant topics affecting this industry on a local level.
