Women of Saint Rose

The project documents the history of Saint Rose Dominican Hospital, built in Henderson, Nevada at the beginning of World War II. Since 1947 it has been owned by the Adrian Dominican Sisters, who established a special relationship between the hospital and the community over the years. Saint Rose is noted for its improvements in the quality of health care in southern Nevada.
