Dignity Health Nevada and Select Medical to Build Acute Rehab Hospital in Las Vegas

A joint venture agreement between Dignity Health and Select Medical Corporation has been made to construct and operate a 60-bed acute inpatient rehabilitation hospital in the Las Vegas area.  The new hospital, expected to open in 2018, will be built directly adjacent to the existing St. Rose Dominican Siena Campus, the largest hospital in Henderson.  Select Medical is the majority owner in the joint venture and will manage operations of the new hospital.  The agreement also includes joint operation of 12 outpatient rehabilitation clinics in the Las Vegas market, including 11 existing Select Medical locations and one Dignity Health center.

Nationally, Select Medical operates 20 inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and more than 100 hospitals specializing in long-term acute care, as well as approximately 1,600 outpatient rehabilitation centers and more than 300 occupational medicine centers through its Concentra subsidiary.

“We are thrilled to partner with Dignity Health to provide an exceptional patient care experience for those needing physical and cognitive functional recovery throughout the region,” said Select Medical Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital Division President Jeffrey Ruskan.  “Our clinical leadership and outcomes in rehabilitation combined with Dignity Health’s reputation of providing outstanding system-wide care is a powerful partnership.  Together, we will deliver top-notch inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services for patients as they strive to restore strength and independence in activities of daily living.”

The Select Medical partnership enables St. Rose to grow its diverse package of health services to include care for patients who have experienced a stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, neurological condition, amputation, orthopedic injury or have other rehabilitation needs.

“This joint venture brings together two health care providers that are committed to excellent patient care,” said Brian Brannman, senior vice president of operations for Dignity Health in Nevada.  “For patients being treated in one of our hospitals, the partnership with Select Medical will make additional long-term medical and rehabilitation resources available to help them return to a full, healthy life.”

St. Rose Dominican Hospitals Performs Minimally-Invasive TAVR

St. Rose Dominican Hospitals is leading the valley in its minimally-invasive heart procedures, including offering the new TAVR procedure, giving patients options for their cardiac care.

St. Rose has successfully completed the SAPIEN Transcatheter Heart Valve by Edwards (TAVR) procedure on several patients, allowing those patients a surgical option when no other option was available.

The TAVR procedure was approved by the FDA in November 2011, as a therapy for adult patients with severe symptomatic native aortic valve stenosis who were determined inoperable for open heart aortic valve replacement surgery by their cardiac surgeons. With the recent opening of St. Rose’s hybrid OR, TAVR therapy is now available for adult patients who are not candidates for traditional open-heart surgery.

“A multi-disciplinary ‘TAVR Heart Team,’ led by cardiothoracic surgeons and interventional cardiologists, is bringing the highest level of heart care to our community,” said Rod Davis, president and CEO of St. Rose Dominican Hospitals and senior vice president of operations, Dignity Health Nevada. “This is another way that St. Rose is meeting the needs of the community and giving physicians the tools they need to care for their patients.”

Up to 1.5 million people in the United States suffer from Aortic Stenosis (AS), and approximately one-third of those suffer from severe AS (usually patients older than 75) which means surgical aortic valve replacement (AVR) is necessary. Studies show that without an AVR, 50 percent of those patients with severe AS will not survive more than two years after symptoms begin.

“The support of St. Rose Dominican Hospitals made this new procedure possible for our patients,” said Dr. Herb Cordero, cardiologist. “Cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons at St. Rose now have the newest technology and procedures to treat patients who would otherwise be too ill for lifesaving surgeries.”

Prior to the approval of TAVR by the FDA, there were no treatment options available for patients who were inoperable because of factors such as age, history of heart disease, frailty or other issues. TAVR enables the placement of a collapsible aortic heart valve into the body via a catheter inserted near the groin rather than by open heart surgery – a much less invasive method of delivery.

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.

San Martin Celebrates Five Years of Service

November 7, 2011 Leave a comment

The Most Reverend Bishop Joseph A. Pepe

Incredibly … our beautiful San Martín Campus opened five years ago this month, and almost half of its now 800 employees have been caring for that hospital’s patients for the entire five years!  In fact, the staff at San Martín has cared for more than 150,000 patients since its opening.

This anniversary was honored with a special mass Thursday (11/3/11), officiated by the Most Reverend Bishop Joseph A. Pepe.

Vicky VanMeetren, president/ CEO of the San Martín Campus, opened up the ceremony with a reflection and welcoming the 60 employees and community members who came to take part in the mass.

“Please join me in celebration of a very important five years, the lives we’ve touched and the ministry we have spread. Thank you to Rod for giving us the opportunity and allowing us to build a place that has touched so many lives – there is truly a spirit of healing here,” VanMeetren said during the mass.

Bishop Pepe thanked the employees for the work that is done day in and day out to care for the community.

“It’s a great day. It really is a credit to Rod and his vision and Vicky who has made this an ongoing ministry,” Bishop Pepe said. “Thank you for everything you’ve done these five years; the spirit and the quality care here is exceptional.”

Rod Davis, senior vice president of operations, CHW Nevada and president/CEO of St. Rose Dominican Hospitals – Siena Campus, closed out the mass with words of praise, encouragement and a focus toward the future.

Davis asked the assembled crowd how they measure success. It is more than the quality numbers that we compile and more than the excellent care that is given.

“The most important way to measure success is the daily interactions with every patient who walks through this hospital. It is caring for every patient how we would like to be treated – with compassion and dignity. It’s giving people hope,” Davis said.
