HistoryEdit

The Summerlin Hospital Medical Center opened on October 16, 1997. With an initial investment of $80 million, the brand new hospital would include 148 beds, all located in private rooms, and would offer Southern Nevada's first and only hospital-based cancer treatment facility.[2]

TimelineEdit

  • October 1997: Summerlin Hospital Medical Center opens with 148 beds.[2] Vacant space was included in the hospital's design for future expansion.[3]
  • December 1999: A new wing for the hospital's intensive care unit opens, as a part of a $1.5 million expansion. The need to expand the hospital came three years earlier than initially expected.[3]
  • June 2005: A four-bed pediatric emergency department opens.[citation needed]
  • May 2008: A new emergency room opens as part of the second phase of a $100 million expansion project.[4]
  • June 25, 2008: The hospital breaks ground on the third and final phase of its expansion project. The final phase consists of a six-story patient facility, adding 180 rooms for a new total of 480. A new medical office building, located near the property's northeast corner, was also under development, with a scheduled opening in fall 2008.[4][5]
  • December 2009: Completion of the expansion project, which includes an expanded hospital with over 480 beds, an expanded Emergency Department, an expanded Labor and Delivery unit, a brand new Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, a second medical office building, and a new parking garage.[6]
