St. Rose Dominican Hospital’s Siena Campus will break ground on a $156 million expansion this spring, according to hospital officials.

The expansion was announced Thursday by Henderson Mayor Andy Hafen in his State of the City speech.

St. Rose spokeswoman Jennifer McDonnell said the expansion would include a five-story, 240,000-square-foot tower that would add 136 private rooms, bringing the hospital’s total capacity to 351 beds. The existing building is 328,078 square feet.

“We have a critical bed shortage in Henderson,” McDonnell said. “The expansion addresses that need.”

Along with an increase in beds, a new emergency room will feature 50 bays, almost doubling the size of the existing emergency room.

The hospital plans to officially announce the expansion next week.

St. Rose opened its Siena campus in 2000 at the corner of St. Rose Parkway and Eastern Avenue in Henderson. It is one of three St. Rose Dominican Hospital campuses in the valley.
