LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A new “neighborhood hospital” is coming to the northwest valley as St. Rose Dominican broke ground Thursday near the 215 Northern Beltway and Durango Drive.

It’s St. Rose Dominican’s fifth small-format hospital of its kind in the valley.

“This is indeed a momentous occasion for Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican family and for the Centennial Hills community,” Dignity Health Nevada President Jon Van Boening said.

“We are confident the current and future residents of this growing area will come to count on us to provide exceptional professional healthcare, in the same way families across the valley have come to for more than 75 years,” he said.

The project will bring a two-story, 24,000-square-foot facility with 10 inpatient beds and eight emergency exam rooms, including a dedicated triage room.

The neighborhood hospitals are built and operated in partnership with Emerus Holdings Inc. Dignity Health said the hospitals address the essential needs of patients and families across the Las Vegas valley, beyond the reach of the company’s three acute care hospitals.

Emerus CEO Vic Schmerbeck said, “Our partnership with Dignity Health–St. Rose Dominican allows us to deliver top-notch medical care through our small-format hospitals, bringing compassionate and experienced care teams closer to where patients live and work.”
