LAS VEGAS, NV. – January 10, 2019 – Dignity Health–St. Rose Dominican announced today next steps in the more than year-long transition of the company’s Rose de Lima Campus. Efforts initiated in January 2018 will allow the company to continue providing robust, modern health care services to the Henderson community now and in the future.
Upcoming transition milestones include:
- Continued streamlining of the Rose de Lima Campus creating a smaller, more efficient facility offering emergency services, diagnostic imaging and limited inpatient care services, working in concert with St. Rose Dominican’s Siena and San Martin campuses to provide comprehensive community care.
- Bringing more than 100 professionals to the Rose de Lima Campus in 2019, through the consolidation of Dignity Health Nevada support and administration functions that will serve the entire southern Nevada market from a centralized facility.
- Relocation of inpatient rehabilitation care from the Rose de Lima Campus to the new Dignity Health Rehabilitation Hospital which is in final stages of construction at the Siena Campus.
“This is the careful continuation of the path we announced a year ago,” said Teressa Conley, President and CEO of Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican, Rose de Lima Campus. “As we near completion of a comprehensive campus transition, our hospital is open and continues to provide emergency and inpatient services to the community.”
Dignity Health–St. Rose Dominican’s extensive network of more than 20 health care facilities in southern Nevada includes acute care services at the Siena and San Martin campuses, quality care at neighborhood hospitals and surgery centers, medical group clinics, wellness centers throughout the valley, and the new Dignity Health Rehabilitation Hospital which will open at the Siena Campus in the second quarter of 2019.
“As a faith-based, nonprofit hospital system, we remain committed to our healing ministry and being a strong and dependable health care provider in southern Nevada,” said Eugene Bassett, Senior Vice President of Nevada Operations for Dignity Health. “Our purpose in this transition is to ensure the services we provide keep pace with both the needs of our community and the complexities of modern health care.”
Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican continues to be guided by the vision and core values of the Adrian Dominican Congregation, whose Sisters established the Rose de Lima campus more than 70 years ago and continue their sponsorship and commitment to serve those in need in southern Nevada.
Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican hospitals work collaboratively to ensure patients have access to acute-care services. Over the last twelve months, services at Rose de Lima have been seamlessly consolidated, coordinating with services available at the nearby Siena and San Martin campuses. In this next phase of transition, Intensive Care and the combined Medical/Surgical-Intermediate Care unit at Rose de Lima will be reduced to ten inpatient beds, supported by inpatient diagnostic imaging services. This phase of transition is expected to complete in the second quarter of 2019.
A deliberate progression of transition has been maintained to preserve staff, accommodate transfers, and ensure the majority of affected staff could be successfully transferred to other Dignity Health Nevada facilities. The company remains committed to assist affected employees.
