About Us

Quality Care Close to Home

Boulder City Hospital is an acute care critical access hospital and skilled nursing facility that has operated continuously since 1954. We are the only rural hospital in Nevada not supported by tax dollars, or a corporate system, and count on private donations to maintain our mission as stewards of the health and well-being of our community. Boulder City Hospital is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization committed to providing compassionate, quality care for all.

Designated a Critical Access Hospital (CAH), our 82-bed hospital provides prompt, personalized and compassionate care in the heart of historic Boulder City with easy access from I-11, I-215 and I-515, and just 15 minutes to the heart of Henderson, Hoover Dam and Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

Boulder City Hospital’s historic beginnings date back to 1931 and the building of the Hoover Dam by the U.S. government and Six Companies, a consortium of firms including Morrison-Knudsen Co., Utah Construction Co., J. F. Shea Co., Pacific Bridge Co., MacDonald & Kahn Ltd. and a joint venture of W. A. Bechtel Co., Henry J. Kaiser, and Warren Brothers.

More than 5,000 workers joined the construction of the Hoover Dam project built between 1931 and 1936 during the Great Depression. At the recommendation of the U.S. Public Health Service and Bureau of Reclamation, Six Companies was directed to build a hospital for its workers.

Today, Boulder City Hospital provides a modern and comfortable setting focused on advancing the health equity of the communities we serve. Embracing innovation and continually improving our care and service delivery through healing, acceptance and stewardship, we provide compassionate, quality care for all seeking medical services.
