MountainView Hospital is celebrating 20 years in the Las Vegas valley.

The city of Las Vegas declared today, Feb. 1, as MountainView Hospital 20th Anniversary Day.

Opening in 1996 with 120 beds, MountainView Hospital has grown to a state-of-the-art, full-service medical facility with 340 beds serving northwest Las Vegas and beyond. Future expansion will grow the hospital to 400 beds with an expanded Emergency Department.

MountainView Hospital features nationally recognized programs including The Spine Program at MountainView Hospital, a top cardiovascular and thoracic center, the renowned Las Vegas Institute for Robotic Surgery, an Accredited Chest Pain Center and Certified Stroke Center. Other areas of excellence include neurosurgery and neurosciences, emergency care, urology, oncology, cardiac services, gynecological services, orthopedics, vascular care, wound care and an inpatient rehabilitation unit.

“MountainView Hospital has been on an incredible growth trajectory the past 20 years,” said Chris Mowan, Chief Executive Officer. “During that time, MountainView has grown its physical footprint, as well as the scope and type of services offered, to meet the needs of our community.

“As we look toward the future, we will continue to focus on bringing new and innovative services and therapies to our patients, while keeping our commitment to service and clinical excellence.”

To help mark the hospital’s anniversary, events are planned throughout the month and year.
