The Rose de Lima Campus has been serving southern Nevada for nearly 75 years. This facility may be the oldest in the St. Rose system, but it is well known for its welcoming staff and high quality health care.
The first of the three Dignity Health - St. Rose Dominican hospitals, the Rose de Lima Campus was established in 1947 when the Adrian Dominican Sisters of Adrian, Michigan, purchased Basic Magnesium Hospital from the U.S. government for $1 a year for 25 years. A $25 million, 4-story expansion was completed in 1991.
The Rose de Lima Campus is the only hospital in southern Nevada to receive an A in hospital safety scores from The Leapfrog Group for six years in a row (2014-2019).
The hospital was named after Rose of Lima (Peru), who was born in April 1586. She took the habit of the Third Order of Dominic and followed the dedicated path of Catherine of Siena. Throughout her life, Rose strived to imitate Catherine’s prayerfulness and dedication to the poor and sick.
Rose was the first canonized saint of the Americas. She combined her spiritual life with a life of service to oppressed Indians and African slaves. Rose’s care of them was so exceptional that she is remembered as a “mother of the poor” to this day in Latin America. Rose died August 30, 1617. She was beatified by Clement IX in 1667 and canonized in 1671 by Clement X.
