Two years ago, the Cleveland Clinic launched a new era of health care in Las Vegas. The world-class clinic partnered with the Lou Ruvo Brain Institute to create the first healthcare collaboration in Las Vegas involving a renowned hospital from outside Nevada. On Tuesday, Stanford Hospital & Clinics and St. Rose Dominican Hospitals followed suit, announcing they are operating a neurological clinic next to St. Rose—Siena Campus in Henderson. The joint venture is the first time Stanford has entered a medical partnership outside California. The agreement does not call for Stanford doctors to work in Henderson, but allows local neurologists to use Stanford's facilities and to take their patients there, as well as tap the university's academic research. An expanded St. Rose Center for Neurosurgery will open in January.
