Healthy Living Institute

The Healthy Living Institute at University Medical Center opened in the spring of 2016.  University Medical Center recognizes the importance of a healthy community and by opening The Healthy Living Institute, we are committing to improving the health and wellbeing of southern Nevada.  We are dedicated to bringing learning opportunities that improve, promote and restore the quality of life in our community.  We offer a wealth of knowledge with our professional associates and staff.  Our quarterly magazine will bring ideas for healthy living and wellness activities that you can participate in.  There is something for everyone. 

Wellbeing is not only one’s physical health; it is the ability for one to find a balance in body, mind and spirit – the whole person.  Our goal is to provide information and guidance in creating a healthy lifestyle using integrative healing practices and evidence based healthcare.  The Healthy Living Institute promotes health and wellness through the entire life span, in a welcoming supportive environment. 

We invite you to join us on a journey to wellbeing.  The Healthy Living Institute has speakers, activities and events in the community promoting healthy lifestyles.  We have yoga, healthy eating, and art therapy, just to name a few.  We hope to see you at the center and at community events. 

The Healthy Living Institute at UMC has adopted the Senior Celebration and Baby Steps programs and staff in order to continue to offer the great services to which you are accustomed. 

Senior Celebrations celebrates adults 50 years and better! Educational opportunities on health related topics, health screenings and activities are included in the HLI calendar.
