$1.6 Billion Nevada “Health Village” in Developmental Stages

Hammes Company, a health-care property developer, is planning a $1.6 billion campus located in Henderson, Nev. that will include senior living and health care facilities.

Hammes will be designing the integrated “health village,” called Union Village, along with partner HKS, Inc. It will replace a 64-year-old Rose de Lima campus, currently operated by St. Rose Dominican Hospitals.

The village will include a 214-bed St. Rose de Lima hospital, a cancer hospital, a long-term acute care and rehabilitation facility, a skilled nursing facility, a proton therapy center, a wellness center, medical office buildings, education and research space, and a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) for up to 1,500 active seniors.


The CCRC, UnionPlace, will offer residents amenities such as a clubhouse with dining facilities, retail space, a hotel and conference center, restaurants, a theater, athletic club, food court, and child development center.

“With UnionVillage, we have a rare opportunity to participate in the creation of a groundbreaking concept that integrates comprehensive health and wellness capabilities with retail, entertainment and cultural amenities, as well as ‘smart’ senior and residential communities,” said Bill Foulkes, Hammes Company Senior Manager.

The Henderson area is in need of better-quality outpatient, acute and post-acute health care and senior living services due to its demographics, said President and COO of Hammes Rich Galling.


The construction will generate 17,000 direct, indirect, and construction jobs, with more than $8 billion in payroll and income tax, and $1.5 billion in property and sales tax.

Union Village was approved to purchase the 171-acre site from the city in June for $11.6 million, and will close on the acquisition later in the year once the city completes required improvements. Construction will commence when the village obtains permanent financing, and Hammes will oversee site preparation and infrastructure improvements.
