June 4 marks the first day Centennial Hills Hospital has had zero inpatients with confirmed diagnoses of COVID-19 since the pandemic began earlier this year.

The hospital milestone coincides with the statewide 39-day downward trend of COVID-19 patients and decrease in COVID-19 hospitalizations over a 14-day period, announced Gov. Steve Sisolak in a news release.

There are still hospitalized patients awaiting confirmation if they do or don’t have COVID-19, but “seeing zero in our daily statistics report for confirmed cases was a highlight today,” said Sajit Pullarkat, the CEO and managing director for Centennial Hills Hospital.

“We hope to see that trend continue.”

Over the past several months, employees and medical staff at Centennial Hills, Desert Springs, Henderson, Spring Valley, Summerlin and Valley hospitals have worked tirelessly to stay up-to-date with the latest news, treatments and recommendations on the care of COVID-19 patients and the protection of patients, visitors, employees and medical staff.
