ER at S. Las Vegas Blvd. — A Department of Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center is now open and serving patients at 10770 S. Las Vegas Blvd. This is the second free standing emergency room ran by Southern Hills Hospital, the first was Er at the Lakes — the first provider based ER in the state of Nevada.

Er at S. Las Vegas Blvd. will give people in the Southwest part of Las Vegas and the strip another choice for car and will help alleviate the chronic shortage of emergency treatment capacity in the Las Vegas Valley.

ER at S. Las Vegas Blvd. will allow faster and more convenient access to medical care for thousands of southern Nevadans by providing full-service emergency and critical care services for all ages.

Unlike many urgent care facilities, ER at S. Las Vegas Blvd. is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week by board-certified emergency room physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals providing most of the same services available at hospital emergency rooms, with significantly shorter wait times. The new facility includes 12 patient examination rooms, around-the-clock laboratory testing, X-ray, CT scanning and ultrasound, and a separate pediatric patients’ entrance.

“This new ER is in one of the fastest growing zip codes in the Las Vegas Valley and we’re thankful to be able to provide the people that live here another choice for care,” said Alexis Mussi, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center. “This new emergency room will provide the full spectrum of care using state-of-the-art diagnostic, monitoring and treatment equipment while delivering a high-quality patient experience in a convenient location.”

The new facility garnered approval from Congresswoman Susie Lee whose district ER at  S. Las Vegas Blvd. is located: “Our healthcare facilities are the anchor in so many of our communities, making sure when people are at their most vulnerable — when they are sick or when they are ill, it’s so important they have quick access,” she said. “Southern Hills has been such a wonderful healthcare partner in Southern Nevada and opening up this ER in a region in a zip code that had no access to acute care is so important for Nevadans in this community.”
