Hospital adds advanced medical services, opens new patient tower, builds two freestanding emergency departments

Since opening its doors in January 2008, Centennial Hills Hospital has worked tirelessly to bring high-quality care to residents of northwest Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and surrounding communities by adding advanced cardiovascular, neurological and neonatology services, more private rooms and two additional freestanding emergency departments.

“In less than 15 years, we’ve doubled in size; this includes building out two additional floors in the original hospital tower building, expanding our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and opening another patient tower in 2020,” said Sajit Pullarkat, CEO/Managing Director, who has worked at Centennial Hills Hospital since its inception.

“Most recently, we opened our first freestanding emergency department, the ER at Valley Vista in January 2022 and broke ground on our second facility, the ER at West Craig Road in August 2022,” said Pullarkat.  “We’ve worked diligently to grow with our community, adding medical services that allow residents to received high-quality, advanced health care, close to home.”
