“My admiration of and appreciation for the quality care provided by all of our St. Rose employees continues to be substantiated by the performance awards we receive,” said Rod Davis, president and CEO of St. Rose Dominican Hospitals and senior vice president of operations, Dignity Health Nevada. “Most importantly, this confirms that our patients are receiving the very best care available.”

St. Rose Dominican Hospitals and Stanford Hospital & Clinics
Celebrates the Grand Opening of the St. Rose Neurosurgery Clinic

(Henderson, Nevada; May 17, 2012) – St. Rose Dominican Hospitals and Stanford Hospital & Clinics, one of the country’s most respected medical institutions, today celebrated the grand opening of the St. Rose Neurosurgery Clinic.
The newly constructed clinic is located at 2865 Siena Heights Dr., Ste. 131 across from the St. Rose Dominican Hospitals – Siena Campus. The affiliation was first announced in fall 2011 and opened in a temporary facility, prior to today’s grand opening.

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 combines 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. In addition, St. Rose and Stanford have plans to expand the partnership to include liver transplant and cardiovascular services.

“The opening of this clinic is another indicator that Las Vegas is a growing health care destination,” said Rod Davis, president and CEO of St. Rose Dominican Hospitals and senior vice president of operations, Dignity Health Nevada. “This affiliation further enhances our investment in health care in the valley, allowing for patients to receive coordinated care and keeps more patients in Nevada to receive that care.”

Amir Dan Rubin, President and CEO of Stanford Hospital & Clinics said: “At Stanford Hospital & Clinics, we strive to heal humanity through science and compassion, one patient at a time, through our commitment to care, educate and discover. We are focused on delivering patient-centered care that is leading edge and highly coordinated. Through our partnership with St. Rose Dominican Hospitals and the opening of the St. Rose Neurosurgery Clinic, we are pleased to provide the most advanced, academic-based neurological care possible to the southern Nevada community and beyond.”

Dr. Randal Peoples, a Stanford faculty member and local physician, is the Medical Director of the St. Rose Neurosurgery Clinic. Peoples, a neurosurgeon, works 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.

Gary Steinberg, Chair of Stanford University’s Department of Neurosurgery, said: “We look forward to continuing our work with Dr. Peoples and his team in delivering in-depth expertise and implementing ground-breaking technologies and new treatment methods to treat the full spectrum of neurological diseases and conditions.”

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.
