Las Vegas Hospital
201 North Eighth Street
Las Vegas

The Las Vegas Hospital was destroyed by fire in 1988.

Campaige Place was built on the lot about twelve years later.

The following is excerpted from an article about Campaige Place in the 21 March 2000 edition of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Architect Rob Wellington Quigley hopped into a cab Monday morning and asked the driver to take him to Campaige Place, a handsome new apartment building he designed in a seedy area of downtown near the El Cortez.

"Are you sure you want to go there?" the driver asked. Quigley assured him it was the right address.

When they arrived, the man, according to Quigley, reacted with one word: "Wow."

Indeed, Quigley's creation -- a colorful, angular structure with a modern, art deco flair -- offers a stark contrast in an area dominated by cheap motels, drug dealers and prostitutes. City officials hope the $12 million project targeting low-income downtown workers will spark other nearby housing, a key ingredient, they say, in the urban redevelopment recipe.


Between the years 1985 and 2000, nine National Register properties in Nevada were lost to vandalism, neglect and renewal as reported by Sean Whaley in the Las Vegas Review-Journal dated 6 November 2000.
