The Valley Health System announced plans today to construct a new acute-care hospital in Henderson, Nevada. The hospital will offer high-demand medical care, including general surgery, emergency and specialty services. It will be constructed on a parcel of land located at U.S. 95 and Galleria Drive in Henderson and will be the anchor of the Union Village complex.
“When the hospital opens, residents in the Henderson community will have access to quality care and advanced services that only an integrated health system can deliver,” said Karla Perez, Regional Vice President, Universal Health Services Acute Care Division. “It is a tremendous privilege and honor to support the community and bring this new hospital and advanced medical care to our families, friends and neighbors in Henderson, Boulder City, western Arizona and beyond, and at such an important time in our nation’s healthcare history.”
Located in Henderson, Nevada, Union Village will be the first integrated health village in the world. Listed as the top healthcare building project in the U.S. by Health Facilities Management, the visionary model for health care will offer a world-class hospital complex and health center, residential, entertainment and specialty retail space, a vibrant senior retirement community and a civic and cultural arts center integrated into a master-planned community.
The new hospital will join five other hospitals of The Valley Health System, which are owned and operated by a subsidiary of Universal Health Services, Inc. They include Centennial Hills, Desert Springs, Spring Valley, Summerlin and Valley hospitals, all located in Las Vegas, Nevada.
