HENDERSON, Nev. -- An empty emergency room bed is rare in the Las Vegas valley, but by the end of next year there will be more beds because of a construction project in Henderson.
St. Rose Dominican Hospital Siena Campus is undergoing a $160 million expansion. Not only is the project adding much needed hospital space, it is also generating jobs. More than 300 people are currently employed on the project.
Josh Goddard and his crew of 40 carpenters are playing an important role.
"This is all the metal stud framing for the wall, we're hanging the top portion of drywall before all the mechanical items are put in," said Goddard, a superintendent with Anning-Johnson company.
