Construction Las Vegas awards Kitchell’s Dignity St. Rose Dominican Hospitals-Siena Campus Project of the Year

Since the completion of its first hospital project in Phoenix in the 1950s, Arizona-based contractor Kitchell has emerged as leading health care builder in the Southwest. With a passion for health care construction and a special understanding of the challenges associated with medical center projects, Kitchell is also a local leader in the niche arena, having worked on five of the major health care campuses in Southern Nevada since opening an office here in 1994- Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center, Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center, Mountain View Hospital, and St. Rose Dominican Hospitals’ Siena and Saint Martin campuses.

“We’re a little different from the other (construction firms) in that we don’t chase every piece of new business, but rather carefully select our clients and then try and do multiple projects on their behalf,” said Mike Walsh, project director for Kitchell, which has operations in Arizona, California, and Texas. “Although we’ve done all kinds of projects throughout the Las Vegas Valley, we’re probably best known here for our work in health care.”
