Centennial Hills Hospital Announces Second Freestanding Emergency Department in Northwest Las Vegas
Centennial Hills Hospital Medical Centers leaders announced the hospital’s second 24-hour freestanding emergency department, the ER at West Craig Road.
Located on the corner of West Craig Road and North Tenaya off US 95 in northwest Las Vegas, it will be an extension of the hospital’s existing emergency department when it opens in mid-to late-2023.
“The northwest corridor of Las Vegas continues to flourish with residential density,” said Sajit Pullarkat, CEO of Centennial Hills Hospital. “Our new location will offer access to high-quality emergency medical care with a greater convenience for all the nearby neighborhoods.
“The January 2022 opening of the ER at Valley Vista, our first freestanding emergency department, was very timely as Southern Nevada experienced the fifth and highest surge of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Pullarkat. “It’s vital that we offer continued advanced medical services to address acute, chronic and pandemic-related medical issues affecting our world today in convenient locations across our local communities.”
The ER at West Craig Road will feature six treatment rooms with an additional three rapid medical exam rooms, advanced imaging services such as computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, and X-ray, an on-site laboratory and a decontamination room with showers. It will use the Cerner FirstNet electronic medical record system that is compatible with Centennial Hills Hospital and other Valley Health System facilities, and will allow patients to access their private health information online. It will be staffed with emergency medicine physicians, nursing, imaging and laboratory staff.
Initial site work began in August and a ceremonial groundbreaking event was held on August 30, 2022.

The groundbreaking of the ER at West Craig follows the completion of Centennial Hills Hospital’s $95 million patient care tower in 2021, which added 72 private maternity and medical-surgical patient rooms, and expanded inpatient pharmacy, laboratory, surgical services and neonatal intensive care departments, and the opening of ER at Valley Vista in January 2022.
