This morning, West Henderson Hospital hosted its topping out ceremony of a seven-story tower. The West Henderson Hospital is sitting on a 40-acre campus located on the southwest corner of Raiders Parkway and St. Rose Parkway, near the Las Vegas Raiders’ headquarters.
The $385 million campus initially include 150 beds, a 37-bay emergency department, surgical suits including heart and hybrid suites, endoscopy suites, cardiac catheterization labs, an electrophysiology lab to treat heart rhythm disorders, an interventional radiology/special procedures lab to treat neurological diagnoses, and inpatient nursing care units. These areas will be supported by ancillary services including imaging, therapy, laboratory, and pharmacy, and support services such as engineering, food and nutrition services and environmental services.
The West Henderson Hospital is part of The Valley Health System, a network of acute care and specialty hospitals, freestanding emergency departments, outpatient services and physician offices in southern Nevada.
SR Construction is the general contractor of the project, along with other design and construction partners including HDR Architects, Excel Engineering, Design Studio Blue, Southwick, Amfab and Nexus, Berg Electric, MMC Gallagher Plumbing, Statewide Fire, and many trade partners.
Joe Garcia, Project Executive at SR Construction, said "The structure in place today is a small physical representation of the significant combined efforts of Best Team Ever of design and construction members. 2,849 Tons of steel has been used to construction the new, seven-story, 150-bed facility. The building behind us will be The Valley Health System's seventh acute hospital in Southern Nevada."
"There have been several challenges that you have faced as a team, including the monsoons and heavy wind that mother nature threw at us this Summer. There have been supply chain and procurement challenges as well, but you've pressed forward with out of the box thinking and planning to keep us on track. Those efforts have allowed use to be here today to celebrate yet another milestone, today's Topping Out," said Chris Loftus, CEO of Desert Springs Hospital.
