A ribbon-cutting ceremony Aug. 10 celebrated the newest Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican Neighborhood Hospital, which officially opened Aug. 16 to serve patients in a region needing improved access to health care.
The West Flamingo Campus, 9880 W. Flamingo Road, is the third of four new neighborhood hospitals to open in southern Nevada this year through a joint-venture partnership of Emerus Holdings and Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican. The North Las Vegas Campus opened June 26 at 1550 W. Craig Road, and the Blue Diamond Campus opened July 26 at 4855 Blue Diamond Road. All four neighborhood hospitals will offer easy access to comprehensive, high-quality care in areas of the community where patients need it most.
“Nevada, like so many states, has challenges when it comes to providing access to emergency services and primary care. We are pleased to offer the Las Vegas community a much-needed solution to this issue, and access to the very best inpatient care, primary care and wellness programs available,” said Laura Hennum, Market CEO for Dignity Health St. Rose Dominican Neighborhood Hospitals.
Among the dignitaries attending the ribbon cutting were Las Vegas Councilman Steve Seroka and Assemblywoman Brittney Miller. John Taing, representing the Office of U.S. Rep. Ruben Kihuen, Christian Bato, representing the office of U.S. Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, and Dane Hudson, District Director for Congresswoman Jacky Rosen, presented certificates of recognition in honor of the ribbon-cutting event. Other speakers included Gene Bassett, Interim SVP of Operations for Dignity Health Nevada, Sallie Doebler, VP of Membership Development of the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce, Lisa Chao, Vice President of Membership of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce, and Sister Phyllis Sikora of Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican.
The 38,500-square-foot Campus features a state-of-the-art emergency department, inpatient beds, advanced imaging center and an ambulatory service center. The West Flamingo Campus will be staffed by ER-trained physicians who are committed to providing the same expert level of care that has made Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican one of the nation's leading health care systems.
