New Henderson Hospital Coming to Las Vegas
In the fall of 2016, The Valley Health System will be adding a sixth facility to serve the Las Vegas area, the new Henderson Hospital. Our architects and user groups have recently completed the program and rendering, shown above. User groups have been the primary drivers of our Henderson Hospital project. Their expertise has been instrumental in the development of efficient throughput and best practices. These direct caregivers, physicians, community members, and managers have provided their time and energy, lots of it, to help the architects develop our 142-bed facility.
Two hundred and forty–five thousand square feet of patient-centric culture will come to life in the fall of 2016. Henderson Hospital will cover 30 acres and anchor Union Village, the first planned health care village of its type in the United States.
Henderson Hospital will be a general acute hospital, complementing The Valley Health System’s other five hospitals. One of the featured service lines, Women’s Services, will be located on the fourth floor with dramatic views of the valley. The unit will include labor and delivery rooms, C-section suites, a newborn nursery, a maternal triage area, and post-partum rooms.
The Emergency Department will provide only board-certified emergency physicians to care for patients, and will be easily identifiable from the highway. Emergency Medical Services (EMS) professionals have been quite involved in our planning, including the helipad. Ample parking and convenient drop-off locations will be available for patients and visitors.
Other services are to include general surgery, imaging and laboratory services, medical and pre- and post-surgery care, full-service intensive and intermediate care along with telemetry.
Our goal is to provide special care during this vulnerable time of the patient’s life. Patients will have planned quiet times during the day and food service available when the patient is hungry. Employees will be empowered to provide best practices and to accommodate the patient’s special needs.
A healing and wellness garden is planned near the northwest corner of the hospital, between the hospital building and the Union Village promenade. The plant species proposed are those that will help add elements such as texture, scent and color. Some species have been included for their lush evergreen appearance to help provide a more dense appearance in the landscape planters as well as to provide a superior cooling effect.
A butterfly garden is also planned for the southwest corner of the hospital, south of the Emergency Department main entrance. Plant species that attract butterflies are being proposed to the City of Henderson.
A special thank you to our Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) team that is working closely with local and state agencies to provide a hospital that addresses 21st century medicine.
We will soon be looking to expand our hiring in order to staff the new hospital, so sign up for job alerts to be notified of new openings in your area of interest.
