NEW YORK & LAS VEGAS (Business Wire) -- MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegasand Delos®, the pioneer of Wellness Real Estate™, continue to set the standard in healthy hospitality with the expansion of Stay Well™, the world's first-ever wellness hotel rooms.

Unveiled in 2012 at MGM Grand, Stay Well by Delos is the first of its kind to integrate medical science and technology into a hotel experience that optimizes and supports guests' health and well-being.
