LAS VEGAS (March 22, 2016) – Southern Hills Hospital announces that it has expanded its hospital by opening a new 46-bed Orthopedic/Spine Unit on its fifth floor.

The $14 million expansion to Southern Hills’ main hospital building replaces the existing orthopedic unit on the hospital’s third floor, which will become an expanded Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and a new Intermediate Care Unit. Since opening in 2004, Southern Hills has continued to address the growing healthcare needs of the community by adding services, which include the construction of a new full-service emergency room in the Summerlin area of Las Vegas. ER at the Lakes is scheduled to open this fall.

“Southern Hills Hospital is proud to provide another level of healthcare to our community,” said Adam Rudd, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Southern Hills Hospital. “It is exciting to expand our services and maintain our commitment to delivering high quality care in Southern Nevada.”

Construction of the new unit began July 2015. With the additional beds, Southern Hills Hospital is now a 180-bed hospital.
