[Las Vegas, NV] – Southern Hill Hospital and Medical Center announces that construction is underway at the hospital for multiple projects including an upgraded neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and the addition of a 6th and 7th floor. The first phase of the project began in June.

The addition of the 6th and 7th floors will bring 30,0000 feet of new construction and each new floor will add an additional 46 beds to Southern Hills. Construction on the sixth floor is currently underway and has an anticipated completion of 2024.

Beginning in July, construction will begin in the Women’s Services Department. The recently remodeled department is getting an upgrade in its neonatal intensive care unit. Currently, the NICU is a level II but will be transformed into a level III providing an even higher level of care for the hospital’s tiniest patients. Construction on the NIUC is scheduled to start at the end of July and go for about a year.

“It is an exciting time for us,” said Alexis Mussi, Chief Executive Officer for Southern Hills Hospital. “We live in one of the fastest-growing areas of Las Vegas so it’s important to us to grow with and continue to serve our neighbors the best way we can with the latest technology and care.”
