Las Vegas, NV — Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center is excited to announce it will be opening a free-standing emergency room located near Las Vegas Blvd. and Cactus. Joining ER at the Lakes, ER at South Las Vegas Boulevard will be the second edition to Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center’s free-standing emergency rooms. ER at South Las Vegas Boulevard will allow faster and more convenient access to medical care for thousands of Southern Nevadans by providing comprehensive emergency and critical care services for adults and children.
Unlike an urgent care, ER at South Las Vegas Boulevard will be staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week by board-certified emergency room physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals providing services available at hospital emergency rooms, with significantly shorter wait times. The new facility will include around-the-clock laboratory testing, X-ray, CT scanning and ultrasound. Patients who require additional emergent care will be admitted to affiliated hospitals.
“Southern Hills Hospital continuously provides excellent emergency care in convenient, neighborhood locations,” said Cullen Brown, Chief Operating Officer, Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center. “As a result of our new free-standing ER, we hope to offer the Las Vegas community an extensive range of health services at a location with a significantly shorter wait time.”
ER at S. Las Vegas Blvd. will break ground late February, and is expected to open in Fall 2020.
