Planned North Las Vegas Medical Campus to Include Hospital | Nevada News
NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — A planned new medical campus in North Las Vegas will include at least one new hospital, medical research and specialty care facilities, and hotel, restaurant and retail operations .
In early March, the city council approved the sale of the 135-acre (54-hectare) site near the existing veterans’ hospital for nearly $37 million to a unit of the Salt Lake City-based Pacific Group.
The council is expected to vote in late April on a master development agreement for the project, which would take up to 10 years to complete.
“It will really help put North Las Vegas on the map,” Mayor John Lee said of the project on Wednesday, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
That would quadruple the number of hospital beds in North Las Vegas. The city, which has more than 260,000 inhabitants, has only 209 today.
Pacific Group has proposed a $4-5 billion investment over three phases that would add 740 hospital beds, including a main hospital and potentially children’s and women’s hospitals, as well as doctors’ offices and technology research spaces, according to its project submission to the city.
