LAS VEGAS, July 16, 2018 — This summer, Dignity Health – St. Rose Dominican Neighborhood Hospitals are celebrating their first year of delivering high-quality, compassionate care to the Las Vegas Valley.
“We are so pleased to provide the Las Vegas community with much-needed and improved access to the very best emergency and inpatient care available,” said Laura Hennum, Market CEO for Dignity Health – St. Rose Dominican Neighborhood Hospitals. “We’re proud the community has embraced us as a trusted care provider, and we’re thrilled to celebrate our one-year anniversary with the residents and patients we serve.”
Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican opened four new hospitals in 2017 in the Las Vegas Valley:
- North Las Vegas Campus: 1550 W. Craig Road
- Blue Diamond Campus: 4855 Blue Diamond Road
- Sahara Campus: 4980 W. Sahara Ave.
- West Flamingo Campus: 9880 W. Flamingo Road
As part of this expansion in locations and services, St. Rose Dominican entered into an agreement with Emerus, a nationally recognized innovator in the delivery of efficient medical care, to build and manage these sites.
In less than a year, more than 50,000 patients received treatment in emergency rooms and inpatient units of these Neighborhood Hospitals, where they can see an ER physician within 15 minutes or less and complete their ER visit within 90 minutes or less. As they continue to grow, Dignity Health – St. Rose Dominican Neighborhood Hospitals remain committed to providing world-class health care services that put the needs of patients and their families at the forefront.
These Neighborhood Hospitals are providing vital, high-quality health care to underserved parts of the Las Vegas Valley. Among the features that set these Neighborhood Hospitals apart: They are fully accredited, independently licensed hospitals, open 24/7, and they treat all patients – regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay. The hospitals are staffed with board-certified ER physicians and hospitalists; maintain transfer agreements with partner hospitals; offer on-site X-ray, CT scans, ultrasound and lab services; and will soon become a hospital and “healthplex” – providing ancillary services, such as physical therapy, primary care, wellness programs and more, depending on community needs.
These hospitals play a key role in the economic revitalization of the areas where they’re located. The Sahara Campus is a key redevelopment initiative, contributing to renewal efforts at Sahara and Decatur. The Sahara Campus replaced an abandoned car lot, and in addition to the hospital, new retail space is going in adjacent to the hospital at Sahara and Decatur.
