The collaboration between Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican and Stanford Hospital & Clinics, one of the country's most respected medical institutions, was developed to enhance adult and pediatric neurological services in southern Nevada. This partnership gives local residents access to the highest level of neurological care without the need to travel out of state.
The affiliation with Stanford Hospital & Clinics marks the first time the well-known medical institution has ventured out of state for a clinical collaboration. This exciting partnership combines the high levels of quality and community trust already established at Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican hospitals with the world-renowned expertise of physicians of Stanford in the treatment of neurological disorders.
The St. Rose Neurosurgery Clinic is staffed by established local physicians who have joined Stanford faculty, bringing this sought after medical specialty to southern Nevada.
Dr. Randal Peoples, a Stanford faculty member and local physician, is the clinic's medical director. A neurosurgeon, Peoples works directly with St. Rose and his Stanford counterparts to implement new protocols and expand the neurological services provided at St. Rose, especially in the area of complex adult and pediatric neurosurgical cases.
According to Gary Steinberg, Chair of Stanford University's Department of neurosurgery, "Stanford faculty physicians will also be available to consult on individual cases."
This clinic enhances the neuroscience services currently offered at all three St. Rose campuses, including stroke and spine care, in-patient rehabilitation services at the Rose de Lima Campus and migraine/headache care at the San Martín Campus' Joint Commission certified Inpatient Headache Program.
The affiliation of St. Rose and Stanford Hospitals & Clinics maintains the independence of both medical centers while offering an environment that will foster partnership and collaboration among staff at both institutions.
