The Valley Health System has acquired land and won unanimous approval from the Enterprise Town Advisory Board and Clark County Board of Commissioners for a Special Use Permit to construct a freestanding emergency room facility at the intersection of Blue Diamond and Cimarron in the southwest Las Vegas valley.

The facility will operate as a 24-hour extension of Spring Valley Hospital’s emergency department and will feature eight treatment rooms, with an additional three rapid medical exam rooms, advanced imaging services such as CT, ultrasound and X-ray, and an on-site laboratory. It will use the Cerner FirstNet electronic medical record system that is compatible with Spring Valley Hospital and other Valley Health System facilities, and will enable patients to access their private health information online. The ER will be staffed with board-certified emergency medicine physicians, nursing, imaging and laboratory staff.

Spring Valley Hospital CEO Leonard Freehof said, “This freestanding ER aims to treat many of the most common emergency cases with short wait times and high-quality, friendly care."

Groundbreaking is planned for later this summer with an opening in early 2019. Stay tuned as more information will be provided later in 2018.
