Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican is expanding and celebrating the groundbreaking of its neighborhood hospital in Las Vegas at Sahara and Decatur, an area of southern Nevada in need of improved access to health care.
Once open, Sahara and three additional neighborhood hospitals are expected to create more than 100 permanent jobs in the greater Las Vegas area.
Board-certified physicians, experienced nurses and other clinical specialists will staff the new neighborhood hospitals. The first level of each of the multi-million dollar hospitals will feature a comprehensive emergency department, an inpatient wing, imaging and quick-access lab services.
In addition to Dignity Health Medical Group practices, other floors will house St. Rose community outreach programs, additional physician offices and other ancillary clinical services to support community health needs.
All neighborhood hospitals will operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, offering patients the highest levels of care in a smaller campus setting.
