The Valley Health System begins construction on acute care hospital in Henderson
Henderson, Nev. – On Wednesday, Oct. 8, Union Village, LLC and The Valley Health System will hold a ceremonial groundbreaking to kick off construction one of the world’s first Integrated Health Villages. Construction on the $1.2 billion project will begin as The Valley Health System breaks ground on a brand new acute care hospital, its sixth facility in Southern Nevada.
Called Union Village, the visionary model for health care will offer a world-class hospital complex and health center, residential, entertainment and specialty retail space, a vibrant senior retirement community and a civic and cultural arts center integrated into a master-planned community. In January 2014, Union Village purchased around 170 gross acres of land located at the northeast corner of US 93/95 and Galleria Drive from the City of Henderson and sold 38.5 acres of the land to The Valley Health System who will use the acreage to develop an acute care hospital within the health care complex.
Union Village is expected to generate 17,000 jobs and billions of dollars in tax revenues for the local and state economies. The result will be an architecturally pleasing, technologically innovative and environmentally sustainable master-planned health village as a center of excellence for the Las Vegas community and the state of Nevada. Union Village will feature state-of-art patient-centric technology and design in a compelling live, learn, work and play environment.
