Dignity Health Transitioning Rose de Lima Campus to Better Serve Community Needs
Dignity Health and the Adrian Dominican Sisters today announced that the Rose de Lima campus will be modifying the services it offers to better serve the needs of the community. Since its founding in 1947, under the sponsorship of the Adrian Dominican Order, the Rose de Lima Campus has been an integral part of Dignity Health’s history and a steadfast partner to those in need in the southern Nevada community.
Over the next few years, the Rose de Lima campus will be transitioning from its existing acute-care structure to provide a variety of much-needed health care services in partnership with others. The current plan calls for an additional Dignity Health neighborhood hospital that will contain inpatient beds as well as an Emergency Room, a Dignity Health office building, and it may also include a behavioral health services center. Rose de Lima will remain open during this transition and will continue to provide acute-care services while undergoing construction.
“Throughout the last several years, we have seen a shift in community needs. Because of this, we decided we needed to modify the services being offered on the Rose de Lima campus to better serve the community,” said Eugene Bassett, senior vice president for Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican hospitals.
“The wonderful staff at Rose de Lima have been providing great care to those in need for over 70 years,” said Teressa Conley, president and chief executive officer for the Rose de Lima Campus. “While our focus is shifting, the Adrian Dominican Sisters and Dignity Health will continue their collective healing ministry while providing a revitalized health services campus to the community.”
“When the Adrian Dominican Sisters purchased the hospital for $1 in 1947, it was to ensure that all those who needed health care could receive it regardless of their ability to pay for it. The people at Rose de Lima have been dedicated to providing compassionate patient care for more than seven decades and have remained true to our healing ministry,” said Sister Patricia Siemen, OP, Prioress of the Adrian Dominican Sisters. “We have been working alongside Dignity Health leadership during this process to ensure that our legacy of caring for the underserved carries forward not only at the other Dignity Health facilities in the area, but also on the Rose de Lima site with our new health care partners.”
As was previously announced in March 2017, the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility currently located at Rose de Lima will be transitioned over to a brand-new acute inpatient rehabilitation hospital that will be built adjacent to the Siena Campus in a joint-venture with Select Medical Corporation. Groundbreaking on this new hospital is expected to take place soon.
