Representatives from Dignity Health Nevada, Steinberg Diagnostic Medical Imaging Centers, Quest Diagnostics, and local government officials participated in the groundbreaking of our new Medical Pavilion Tuesday, March 22.
Despite crazy winds, more than 100 people attended the groundbreaking, showing there is a great deal of interest in the services that will be offered at the Medical Pavilion. The new Pavilion will increase access to primary, urgent, and diagnostic health care services once it opens in early 2017.
The Medical Pavilion will include the first Dignity Health Urgent Care location in Nevada, a Dignity Health Medical Group Nevada clinic staffed by primary care physicians, a Steinberg Diagnostic Imaging center, and a Quest Diagnostics location along with other services.
Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican is celebrating with the groundbreaking of its first neighborhood hospital in North Las Vegas, an area of southern Nevada in need of improved access to health care. The new neighborhood hospital is expected to create more than 100 permanent jobs in North Las Vegas
The groundbreaking will be held Wednesday, March 2, at 11 a.m. on the northwest corner of Craig Rd. and Camino Al Norte. Dignitaries will include Mayor John Lee of North Las Vegas, executives from Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican and from Emerus.
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.
Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican, which operates three acute-care hospitals in Henderson and Las Vegas – the Rose de Lima Campus, the San Martin Campus, and the Siena Campus, will be building four new neighborhood hospitals in the greater Las Vegas area within the next two years. These neighborhood hospitals are designed specifically to increase access to high-quality emergency care in underserved metropolitan areas.

The first of the four locations to open is the North Las Vegas Campus, which is scheduled for opening in the first quarter of 2017. The North Las Vegas opening will be followed by three sites in Las Vegas: Blue Diamond Campus, West Flamingo Campus and Sahara Campus, with all sites in operation by summer 2017. Two additional valley locations are also under consideration.
As part of this expansion, St. Rose Dominican has a joint-venture agreement with Emerus, a nationally recognized innovator in the delivery of efficient medical care, to build and manage these sites and to lay the groundwork for additional facilities through the region. This highly efficient model has been successful in both Colorado and Texas, creating shorter wait times in their fully functioning emergency departments, while decompressing the current burden of current ERs.
Brian Brannman, senior vice president of operations for Dignity Health Nevada. “By partnering with Emerus and building these neighborhood hospitals, we will be expanding our services to the community in convenient locations with compassion, efficiency and excellence, while maintaining our high standards for quality, safety and service. With several of our new locations in areas of redevelopment and growth, such as the North Las Vegas and Sahara/Decatur campuses, we will be the neighborhood choice. St. Rose is proud to work with Emerus to bring this highly-efficient health care model to Nevada.”
“We are honored to partner with Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican, an organization that values excellence, compassion and collaboration,” said Dr. Toby Hamilton, MD, FACEP and CEO of Emerus. “Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican hospitals will continue to grow as the Las Vegas region grows. They are positioned to be the region’s leader in the delivery of efficient, value-driven, community-based health care now and into the future.”
A groundbreaking celebration for the North Las Vegas Campus will be held March 2. Construction on the initial four hospitals is expected to begin shortly. Once open, each hospital is expected to create more than 100 permanent jobs in the greater Las Vegas area.
In addition to creating additional access for high-demand, lifesaving emergency care, these neighborhood campuses will also extend access to primary care. Nevada ranks 46th in the nation for its share of primary care doctors, family care specialists and pediatricians. Each neighborhood campus will include a new Dignity Health Medical Group primary-care clinic, which will help ease the burden on primary-care physicians currently in practice.
$20,000 in Donations Made to Local Charities
Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican’s medical staff is spreading humankindness this holiday season by making donations to local nonprofits that go above and beyond when providing assistance for those in southern Nevada and those serving overseas. Each hospital campus’ medical staff committee chose a nonprofit and notified them of the award last week. The donations include:
- Safe Nest – $10,000 to fund holiday and scholarship activities for domestic violence victims;
- Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation – $5,000 to help fund the shipping costs for 500 care packages to
deployed military members in Afghanistan and Iraq this holiday season;
- Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada – $5,000 to fund a full, free community meal for a day.
“Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican and its medical staff is dedicated to improving the quality of life for those in our community,” said Dr. Gary Mono, vice president for medical staff affairs for Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican. “We are very proud to announce these donations and grateful for everything these charities do for those in need every day.”
A variety of dignitaries attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Dominican Tower at the Siena Campus Monday, November 9, including
- Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske
- Senator Joyce Woodhouse
- Assemblyman Lynn Stewart
- Assemblyman Stephen Silberkraus
- Henderson Mayor Andy Hafen
- Councilwoman Gerri Schroder
- Councilwoman Debra March, and
- Henderson Chamber of Commerce CEO, Scott Muelrath.
The dignitaries, along with many Henderson Chamber of Commerce board members and staff, joined Siena Campus CEO, Brian Brannman, COO, Teressa Conley, and nearly 100 employees for the ceremony.
The new five-story, 220,000 square foot tower features 96 more private rooms, new expanded adult and children’s emergency rooms (56 private rooms), six new operating suites, and expanded services for orthopedics, cardiology, admitting, nutrition services, radiology, lab, pharmacy, endoscopy suites, and other support services.
Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican’s Siena Campus was named a 2015/2016 Consumer Choice Award recipient by National Research Corporation. The annual award identifies hospitals across the United States that healthcare consumers choose as having the highest quality and image.
“We applaud the efforts of our medical staff and employees,” said Brian Brannman, senior vice president of operations, Dignity Health Nevada. “They work in partnership with our patients, visitors, and community to consistently and constantly improve the safety and quality of the care we provide.”
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Consumer Choice Award celebrating the power of a strong brand image in healthcare.
“For each of the past 20 years, winning hospitals have provided outstanding experiences that have transcended their four walls to build consumer preference, loyalty, and trust in their markets. We are honored to congratulate this year’s winners on a job well done,” said Brian Wynne, Vice President of Business Development at National Research.
