St. Rose Dominican Hospitals and Stanford Hospital & Clinics Opens St. Rose Center for Neurosurgery



New Collaboration to Provide Southern Nevadans

With Much Needed Specialty Care

St. Rose Dominican Hospitals has collaborated with Stanford Hospital & Clinics, one of the country’s most respected medical institutions, to enhance adult and pediatric neurological services in southern Nevada with the opening of the St. Rose Center for Neurosurgery. 

The affiliation with Stanford Hospital & Clinics marks the first time the well-known medical institution has ventured out of California for a clinical collaboration. The partnership will combine the high levels of quality and community trust already established at St. Rose Dominican Hospitals with the world-renowned expertise of Stanford in the treatment of neurological disorders at St. Rose. The center will be staffed by established local physicians who have joined Stanford faculty, bringing a sought after medical specialty to southern Nevadans.

Dr. Randal Peoples, a Stanford faculty member and local physician, was appointed as the Medical Director of St. Rose Center for Neurosurgery.  Peoples, a neurosurgeon, will work directly with St. Rose and his Stanford counterparts to implement new protocols and expand the neurological services provided at St. Rose Dominican Hospitals, especially in the area of complex adult and pediatric neurosurgical cases.

“St. Rose has long been interested in expanding our neuroscience services so we can provide an even higher level of care for our community,” said Rod Davis, president/CEO, St. Rose Dominican Hospitals. “Our affiliation with Stanford faculty and physicians will allow us to provide first-class, academic-oriented care close to home.”

Amir Dan Rubin, President and CEO of Stanford Hospital & Clinics said: “We are very pleased to partner with St. Rose Dominican Hospitals to bring expanded neuroscience services to the southern Nevada community. Our collaboration with St. Rose allows us to further our mission of healing humanity through science and compassion one patient at a time.”

“Stanford faculty physicians will also be available to consult on individual cases,” said Gary Steinberg, Chair of Stanford University’s Department of Neurosurgery. “We look forward to providing a high level of care and the expertise of Stanford physicians to St. Rose patients.”

The St.Rose Center for Neurosurgery is open and located in the Del Webb medical office building, adjacent to the St. Rose Dominican Hospitals – Siena Campus, and patients can make appointments now. An expanded center is scheduled to open this winter and will be located across the street from the Siena Campus, in an existing medical complex.

The affiliation maintains the independence of both medical centers while providing an infrastructure that will foster partnership and collaboration among staff at both institutions. By joining forces, St. Rose Dominican Hospitals and Stanford will now be able to provide academic-based care close to home.

The clinic enhances the neuroscience services currently offered at all three campuses including stroke and spine care, in-patient rehabilitation services at Rose de Lima, and migraine/headache care at San Martín.
