Community Health Programs
Dignity Health - St. Rose Dominican continues to meet the community’s health needs in a variety of ways based on a commitment to promote wholeness of body, mind and spirit in an atmosphere of collaboration.
This past fiscal year (2020), that mission was prominent as St. Rose Dominican provided nearly $140 million in net community benefits, including the unpaid cost of Medicare.
In early 2021, Dignity Health - St. Rose Dominican, the community's only nonprofit, faith based hospital system, made more than $350,000 in grant awards to seven nonprofit organizations in Henderson and Las Vegas working together to improve health status and quality of life. St. Rose has funded community programs for more than 20 years.
Dignity Health - St. Rose Dominican and its affiliate organizations are strong supporters of the community. A variety of community programs are available for Henderson and Las Vegas valley residents and visitors.
