St. Rose Siena Campus Celebrates 20 Years

Hospital invites first generation #BornAtSiena to join in occasion by posting photos

LAS VEGAS, July 14, 2020 – The Siena Campus of Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican this week marks the twentieth anniversary of the date the hospital first opened its doors. While a traditional celebration is impractical, Siena is inviting the community to mark the occasion by becoming part of the Siena legacy in a modern way.  

On July 17, 2000, Henderson, Nevada, was the fastest growing city in the United States and the debut of the $85 million St. Rose Dominican Siena Campus on that date made 141 new in-patient hospital beds and services available to the community. Designed to provide one-stop care for an entire family’s health care needs, the new facility offered state-of-the-art technology across the full spectrum of care – from Emergency Services, Cardiology, and Surgery, to Radiology, Maternal Child Care and Oncology. 

“The opening of the Siena Campus in 2000 was a strong testament to both the burgeoning growth of Henderson and St. Rose Dominican’s commitment to provide quality, compassionate healthcare,” said Lawrence Barnard, Dignity Health Nevada President and CEO of the Siena Campus. “Our commitment to this community remains undiminished. In recent years, and in the face of unspeakable tragedy and unimaginable pandemic, our healing mission is stronger than ever. I am proud of the Siena team and the compassionate care they deliver to our patients and families every day.”

More than 60,000 babies have been born at Siena over the past 20 years. That’s more babies than the population of Carson City, NV. 

“A full generation of new lives have taken their first breaths and been welcomed to the world under our roof and under our care,” said Mr. Barnard. “There is no better legacy for Siena, our people, and our ministry, than the privilege of playing a role in the start of so many new families. So we ask the many mothers and fathers and those who are members of the first generation born at Siena to post photos to the hospital’s Social Media sites.”

Sister Phyllis Sikora, O.P., Vice President of Mission Integration for St. Rose Dominican said, “I encourage everyone to be a part of our celebration and a part of Siena’s legacy of compassionate care. Our world needs compassion like never before. Our communities need caring and our families need protection that we can provide.”

The Siena Campus was the second hospital built by St. Rose Dominican Hospitals. The Adrian Dominican Sisters founded St. Rose Dominican Hospital in 1947, with a mission to provide quality, compassionate healthcare to the people of Southern Nevada. 

Still guided by the sisters, St. Rose Dominican continues to promote wholeness of body, mind and spirit in the Dominican tradition of working with others to improve the health status of the community in a shared pursuit for justice and truth with a commitment to those with special needs.

Over the past two decades, Siena has grown in both size and scope to meet the ongoing demands of the growing southern Nevada community. Now a 326-bed hospital with a 56-bay Emergency Department, Level III Trauma Center designation, and a dedicated Pediatric ER, the Siena Campus employs more than 2,200 health care professionals and staff, supported by more than 300 volunteers, who donated almost 30,000 hours last year.
