Centennial Hills Hospital: Celebrating 10 Years of Caring for the Northwest and North Las Vegas Communities

Since opening its doors in January 2008, Centennial Hills Hospital has worked non-stop to bring high-quality care to residents of northwest Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and surrounding communities by adding advanced cardiovascular, neurological and neonatology services, more private rooms and specialized patient care units.

We will continue to explore new services and opportunities to enhance the patient experience.”
