St. Rose Dominican Hospitals

St. Rose Dominican Hospitals are part of Dignity Health, the nation's fifth largest non-for-profit health system. Our healing philosophy focused on “Humankindness” serves all people in need including our patients, visitors, guests, staff, physicians and the communities we serve. The Dignity Health system in southern Nevada has the only not for profit, faith-based network with three hospital campuses – St. Rose De Lima, St. Rose Siena and St. Rose San Martin. These mission-driven Hospitals are guided by our vision and core values providing compassionate, high quality, patient-centered care to address each patient’s physical, mental and spiritual needs.

Siena Hospital - Opened in 2000 to enhance and expand the services provided by the Rose De Lima Campus; this acute-care hospital houses  230 beds and is in the midst of an expansion that includes a new five-story hospital tower and four-story parking garage. The nearly 220,000 square foot tower will offer some of the most advanced medical amenities available today and will add almost 100 more private patient rooms. The tower will complement the tertiary services already available as well as the community based services of a Level III NICU, Level III trauma center, accredited chest pain center and Joint Commission accredited Primary Stroke Center. 

Dignity Health is recognized as one of the top ten best employers in Nevada on Forbes’ annual list of America’s Best-In-State Employers 2020.

Fourth Floor

  • IMC Patient Rooms - 36 additional "intermediate care" rooms are available for patients who don't need the highest level of acute care (ICU care)
  • Oncology - 16 dedicated oncology patient rooms
  • Our expansion has provided a quiet, comfortable healing environment for patients and their loved ones as well as the space and equipment our caregivers need to fully attend to each patient.

Our commitment to filling the health care needs of our community goes beyond the new tower! Many areas in the existing hospital (now referred to as the Adrian Tower) have been expanded and upgraded, including a larger, more private admitting area, a redesigned cafeteria and kitchen, expanded lab services, dedicated oncology and mother/baby units, and more.

  • Exposure to and ability to impact all aspects of business operations associated with your practice
  • Flexibility to adjust work/life balance to meet your personal and professional needs, since you’re the one running the practice
  • Choice of joining an established practice or developing a new independent practice
