In 1978, Irwin Molasky and his development partners started Southern Nevada’s first home-care hospice, The Nathan Adelson Hospice. It was based on a program in England- St. Christopher’s Hospice-where they taught people how to care for patients who were dying and to do so with dignity. The mission of The Nathan Adelson Hospice is to provide patients and their loved ones with comprehensive end-of-life care and influence better care for all in our community. In 1983, The Nathan Adelson Hospice opened its Swenson facility with 20 in-patient beds and has since become a national model for other in-patient hospice facilities throughout the United States and it is the second hospice facility ever to open in the United States. Located on the campus of The University of Nevada at Las Vegas, the Nathan Adelson Hospice/Swenson facility is devoted to palliative care for terminally ill patients and grief programs. The facility is a quad design with five quads, a chapel, dining area and full-service kitchen. A second facility is now open in the southwestern part of Las Vegas and is a 16-bed in-patient hospice facility. The Molasky Group is currently in development for a third Nathan Adelson Hospice facility in the Northwestern part of Las Vegas.
