ER at Valley Vista to be Built Near Decatur Blvd. and Elkhorn Road

Centennial Hills Hospital leaders announced site work is underway on the ER at Valley Vista, the hospital’s first 24-hour freestanding emergency department.

Located on the northeast corner of Decatur Boulevard and Elkhorn Road in North Las Vegas, the ER at Valley Vista will be an extension of the hospital’s existing emergency department when it opens in late 2021.

“As the northwest and North Las Vegas communities continue to expand and thrive, our goal is to continue meeting their medical needs,” said Sajit Pullarkat, CEO of Centennial Hills Hospital. “This location will allow us to provide access to high-quality emergency medical care with a greater convenience for our growing communities.”

The ER at Valley Vista will feature six treatment rooms with an additional three rapid medical exam rooms, advanced imaging services such as computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, and X-ray, an on-site laboratory and a decontamination room with showers. It will use the Cerner FirstNet electronic medical record system that is compatible with Centennial Hills Hospital and other Valley Health System facilities, and will allow patients to access their private health information online. It will be staffed with emergency medicine physicians, nursing, imaging and laboratory staff.

Initial site work began in January and a small ceremonial groundbreaking event is planned for March 2021.

The groundbreaking of the ER at Valley Vista follows the completion of Centennial Hills Hospital’s $95 million patient care tower, which added 72 beds in late 2020, including a 36-bed mother-baby unit and a 36-bed medical/surgical nursing unit. Additional construction plans for 2021 include an expansion of the neonatal intensive care unit, inpatient pharmacy, laboratory, surgical services and post-anesthesia care unit.
