MountainView Hospital’s ER at Skye Canyon opened July 20

MountainView Hospital’s emergency room at Skye Canyon opened on July 20 and already treated its first patient. ER at Skye Canyon is in the heart of the Skye Canyon community in northwest Las Vegas.

The ER is at 9860 W. Skye Canyon Park Drive in the Smith’s Marketplace center and just west of U.S. Highway 95.

The 24-hour facility operates as a fully integrated department of MountainView Hospital, while serving patients in a convenient, off-site location.

The new ER is designed to meet the needs of the community of northwest Las Vegas and its rapidly growing population. It allows residents to seek emergency care in their neighborhood.

“MountainView Hospital has long recognized the need for emergency services in our communities. We are proud to bring ER at Skye Canyon, nestled in the heart of this beautiful and fast-growing community to the northwest,” said Julie Taylor, MountainView Hospital chief executive officer. “With this new facility, we can offer an additional option for our patients to receive high-quality health care close to home and provide the community with an ER to meet their needs.”

The 11,000-square-foot building includes 12 patient rooms and is staffed by board-certified ER physicians and nurses, with a wide range of on-call hospital specialists.

The ER is open 24 hours a day, seven-day-a-week. ER at Skye Canyon accepts vehicle ambulance services and walk-in patients, and is fully equipped to provide emergent and urgent care, in addition to ancillary services. The facility offers a fully functional lab and blood bank, a (non-retail) pharmacy and a full spectrum of radiology services, including CT scan, X-ray and ultrasound. The ER serves adult and pediatric patients.

ER at Skye Canyon adheres to the same regulatory and accreditation standards as traditional emergency departments. The facility provides all of the services available at on-site ERs, with the exception of trauma care and medical services or patients transported by air ambulances. Patients who require hospital admission will be transported to an affiliated hospital that meets the required level of care.
