The affiliation between St. Rose Dominican and Stanford Hospital & Clinics in Las Vegas marked the first time the well-known medical institution ventured out of California for a clinical collaboration. These Stanford Hospital & Clinics, also called satellite clinics, in Las Vegas combine the high levels of quality and community trust already established at Dignity Health – St. Rose Dominican with the world-renowned expertise of Stanford Hospital and Clinics staff in the treatment of cardiovascular and thoracic and neurological disorders.
May 2012 marked the grand opening of this joint effort between St. Rose Dominican and Stanford Hospital and Clinics, bringing together two of the nation’s most respected names in health care. The St. Rose/Stanford venture maintains independence of both centers while offering an infrastructure that encourages collaboration between the staff of each clinic.
The joint clinics’ cardiovascular and thoracic surgery program is advancing cardiovascular and thoracic surgery in southern Nevada, helping to decrease post-surgical complications while increasing patient survival rates. The program employs state-of-the-art technology for Las Vegas and Henderson heart and thoracic surgeries. This includes new hybrid types of cardiac/cardiovascular surgery procedures.
By bringing this elevated level of expertise to southern Nevada, local patients who might otherwise have had to travel to a Stanford clinic for treatment of complicated cases no longer have to leave home to receive the very best in cardiovascular and neurological care.
The goals of the clinic are to provide university-affiliated medical care close to home and to offer a larger variety of minimally-invasive treatments to southern Nevada and Las Vegas patients.
Treatments the clinic offers include beating heart surgery, minimally-invasive cardiac and thoracic surgeries, transmyocardial laser revascularization, maze procedures for a-fib (atrial fibrillation), robotic-assisted cardiac surgery, including daVinci ® Si Surgical System.
