The Valley Health System announced today the acquisition of Elite Medical Center Las Vegas, a privately owned micro-hospital offering emergency and inpatient care in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.
“We are pleased to further expand The Valley Health System’s network by providing comprehensive healthcare services to residents and visitors,” said Karla Perez, Regional Vice President, Universal Health Services. “Las Vegas Boulevard is almost a city within itself. Accessing emergency medical care right on the Strip is convenient, and our ability to quickly transport patients to one of our affiliated tertiary care hospitals can be life-saving in complex situations such as emergency surgery, balloon angioplasty for heart attacks or stroke interventions.”
The facility’s new, official name is Elite Medical Center, an Extension of Valley Hospital. Elite Medical Center will continue to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The majority of the medical center’s clinical staff accepted job offers with The Valley Health System.
Elite Medical Center offers emergency care, imaging (radiology) services, laboratory services, and COVID-19 testing for employees returning to work or travelers who need testing before returning home or to their next destination. A 22-bed inpatient medical/surgical unit accommodates low-acuity overnight stays, eliminating the necessity for transfer of patients whose conditions meet criteria.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
