The Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican system announced they have officially opened the doors of their new North Las Vegas Campus neighborhood hospital.

The 60,000-square-foot North Las Vegas Campus has been accepting patients for a little more than a week, and is part of a joint venture between the large Nevada healthcare system and Emerus Holdings. The facility holds eight emergency beds and eight in-patient beds. In addition, the hospital comes with a computerized tomography scan and X-ray room, a lab, and space for primary care and specialty physicians. 

"The hospital will serve residents in an area in great need of improved access to quality health care, said Laura Hennum, Market CEO for Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican Neighborhood Hospitals. "We are so pleased to offer the Las Vegas community much-needed, and improved, access to the very best inpatient care, primary care and wellness programs available," she said.

The partnership venture will yield three more new Las Vegas "neighborhood" hospitals this year including the upcoming Blue Diamond Campus, Sahara Campus, and West Flamingo Campus.

All told, the hospitals are expected to bring 250 to 280 jobs to the Valley, Emerus said.

Moreover, it will also increase access to care in a state that is notorious for low rankings when it comes to access to healthcare. Nevada has often ranked in the bottom five states when it comes to this metric.
