Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican's three hospitals have become the premier surgical facilities in southern Nevada. Some of the state's most experienced surgeons use St. Rose's highly advanced technology to perform thousands of surgical procedures annually in the following areas:
- Cosmetic and Reconstructive
da Vinci® Si Surgical Systems

"We pride ourselves on our advanced equipment and our caring, competent staff," said Rod A. Davis, President and CEO. "They make all the difference in quality, compassionate care for patients."
The Rose de Lima Campus has six operating rooms (one specifically for urology procedures) utilizing state-of-the-art equipment.
The Siena Campus has ten (10) operating rooms specially designed for St. Rose's Open Heart Surgery program and equipped for laparoscopic procedures. The Siena Campus also provides multiple surgical care procedures for pediatric patients.
St. Rose began offering da Vinci® Surgical System services at its Siena Campus in late 2007. This state-of-the-art robotic technology allows surgeons’ hands to produce scaled movements through small surgical openings. The da Vinci is completely controlled by – and is an extension of – the surgeon. The da Vinci system is used to perform delicate surgeries such as prostatectomies, hysterectomies and pediatric procedures. Benefits of its small, precise incisions include less pain, less scarring, quicker recovery times, and in many cases, better clinical outcomes.
The San Martín Campus provides exceptional surgical patient care for adult patients in our communities. With its new da Vinci® Si Surgical System, San Martín provides many minimally-invasive approaches to surgical procedures, resulting in reduced pain, shorter operating times, decreased recovery time, decreased length of hospital stay, and reduced risk of surgical site infection.
The surgical specialties that the San Martín offers Campus consists of include: Cardiac (heart) Surgery, Thoracic Surgery, Peripheral Vascular Surgery, General Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery, including spinal surgery, Neurosurgery, including spinal surgery, Urological Surgery, Gynecological Surgery, including oncology procedures, Maxillo-Facial Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Ear, Nose, Throat (ENT) Surgery, and Podiatry Surgery.
Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican, San Martín Campus has six (6) state-of-the-art operating room suites, a twenty-one (21)-bay same day surgery (pre-op preparation) unit, a fifteen (15)-bay Post Anesthesia Care Unit (recovery room), two (2) Pre-admission Testing rooms, two (2) very well-equipped Endoscopy Suites, and an excellent Central Sterile Processing Department that ensures the integrity of the sterile instruments and equipment utilized.
The San Martín Campus was designed with the Universal Room concept in mind, so all procedural rooms, including the Cardiac Cath Lab, are conveniently located in the same area, affording excellent and efficient patient transition among the procedural units and to the post procedure nursing units.
