(Henderson, Nev.; April 7, 2011). Rod A. Davis, president/CEO of St. Rose Dominican Hospitals, today announced that it is partnering with the Union Village development project to build a new healthcare campus in Henderson.
“We are excited to be a part of the vision that is Union Village as it takes the city of Henderson to the next level as a premier place to live and work,” Davis said. “This new Rose de Lima Campus will continue the 65 year commitment to service that the Adrian Dominican Sisters brought to Henderson and the surrounding communities. Preliminary plans call for a new Rose de Lima Campus at the Union Village site that will house a continuum of healthcare services.”
The new Rose de Lima Campus will be on the parcel of land located just east of I-515/US 93/95, at the site of the new Galleria interchange. St. Rose continues to work with Union Village developers to structure the agreement and development plans.
Preliminary plans call for a 214-bed hospital, initially opening with 154 beds, with shelled space for another 60 beds for future expansion.
St. Rose’s health care services are in demand now more than ever – it is clear that the Henderson market is still underserved in terms of the number of hospital beds available – thus St. Rose is studying the number of acute care beds, inpatient rehabilitation beds, surgery suites and all ambulatory services needed at this new - more - hospital to best serve our community.
Not only do plans call for a new Rose de Lima Campus, studies are under way for additional healthcare facilities to be built to create an integrated health campus, including a rehabilitation hospital, long-term acute care and sub-acute care. Also being included in planning, in the intermediate term, are plans for a Children’s Hospital.
Currently, business planning continues to be under way to determine the financial feasibility of the health care campus, and the team is moving forward to obtain appropriate financing and approvals to begin to develop the hospital by the end of this year.
“The Union Village concept, with its Smart City design, its focus on community and the continuum of care, along with the civic component, are all in line with St. Rose’s continuing vision – caring for our community and making it a better place to live,” Davis said.
The first of the three St. Rose Dominican Hospitals campuses, the Rose de Lima Campus, was established in 1947 when the Adrian Dominican Sisters of Adrian, Michigan, purchased Basic Magnesium Hospital from the U.S. government for $1 a year for 25 years. Since that time, the Rose de Lima Campus has grown and evolved to meet the needs of the community.
Union Village - Integrated Health Village
Union Village is the master planned development for an integrated health village, featuring patient‐centric technology and design in a compelling live, work and play environment on 171 acres of land, located at the intersection of the I‐515/US 93/95 Interstate and Galleria Drive in Henderson, Nevada.
Union Village brings together some of the world’s foremost experts in planning, architecture, technology, livable communities, builders and asset managers. The result will be an architecturally pleasing, technologically innovative and environmentally sustainable master planned health village. The health village will include a state‐of‐the art hospital complex that features a full continuum of care integrated into retail, entertainment, residential and cultural centers with a vibrant senior retirement community.
A cornerstone of the project is a planned hospital campus by St. Rose Dominican Hospitals. Preliminary plans call for a 214-bed hospital, initially opening with 154 beds, with shelled space for another 60 beds for future expansion.
