Wynn Resorts and University Medical Center have announced a partnership that will give employees of Wynn Las Vegas access to testing at no cost to the employee.
“We are extremely proud to be able to share UMC’s laboratory and testing capabilities with our neighbors at Wynn Resorts.  A vibrant tourism destination relies on our expert healthcare system to care for all who live in and visit Las Vegas, and we look forward to working alongside Wynn Resorts to bring us all back together again,” said UMC CEO Mason VanHouweling in a press release.
Beginning this week, Wynn employees will have direct access to Coronavirus testing at UMC designated locations in Las Vegas. Thanks to the UMC’s investment into new labs, they are now able to perform thousands of tests a day according to a press release.
“The sense of shared responsibility among partners such as University Medical Center and the Southern Nevada Health District to create a safe environment for our community, and in turn the tourists who will return to Las Vegas, has been absolutely remarkable,” said Matt Maddox, CEO of Wynn Resorts in the same news release. “This enhanced testing capability and expanded contact tracing, combined with newly available tracking of benchmarks, are exactly the tools we need to keep our employees safe, our community secure, and eventually welcome tourists back to Las Vegas.”
Wynn Resorts is working with the government to find out when it can safely reopen and will work with UMC to set up on-site testing for employees. Wynn has also announced that 70 of its employees from its Teleservices Call Center are going to assist the Clark County Commission with ramped up contact tracing efforts.
This partnership is not the first way Wynn has helped support employees over the last several weeks. Previously in April, Wynn announced it extended benefits to all of its North American employees, including all salaried, hourly and part-time employees through May 15, for a total of 60 days of payroll continuance. This payroll coverage includes more than 15,000 current Wynn and Encore employees.  
“It is our shared responsibility to follow the direction of health and safety professionals to stay home, and limit social contact,” said Wynn Resorts CEO Matt Maddox on the company’s website. “We owe it to each other, our families and to our community.”
