MountainView Hospital today dedicated its new patient tower, the final phase of a multi-phase, multi-year project that included expanding MountainView’s ER and building up for the tower, and a new parking garage.
The new tower adds 64 beds and 71,714 square feet to MountainView Hospital.
“The opening of this patient tower means we can work to meet the increased need for healthcare services in our community,” said Hiral Patel, MountainView Hospital Chief Executive Officer. “This allows us to continue to provide high level of care that this community deserves.
“With this new expansion, we will have that additional space as patients continue to choose MountainView Hospital for their care.”
The tower, scheduled to open to patients soon, is part of a years-long project to expand the hospital to meet the demands of the grown Las Vegas community. In 2023, MountainView opened Phase 2 of its ER expansion, adding additional treatment areas. Additionally, MountainView opened its second parking structure in 2023, adding an additional 543 parking spots to the medical campus.
“We have grown in many ways over the past 27 years to serve the community. Whether it was adding new clinical programs, such as bone marrow transplant or bringing innovative surgeries, such as the first in Nevada Whipple robotic surgery, we have always focused on how to serve our patients and communities better, “Patel said. “One way we can do that is continue to provide the physical space to meet the needs of the community.”
The opening ceremony for the new patient tower included a city of Las Vegas proclamation and a ribbon cutting that included hospital staff members. A “Did You Know” poster display, featuring facts about MountainView, guided people through the second-floor unit of the new patient tower.
The total cost of the multi-phase project was $55 million.
