June 30, 2017, Las Vegas, Nevada – The vision of Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican hospitals for four neighborhood hospitals is a step closer to reality after the June 15, 2017, ribbon-cutting ceremony for the hospital in North Las Vegas.
St. Rose Dominican, sponsored by the Adrian Dominican Sisters, broke ground for the 20,000-square-foot hospital in the spring of 2016. The hospital formally opens on June 30. During the remainder of 2017, the other three neighborhood hospitals will be opened: July 24, August 16, and early November.
Sister Kathleen McGrail, OP, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the neighborhood hospitals were planned to meet the needs of people who are underserved or unserved. The hospitals are designed so each patient can be seen by a physician and two nurses.
