Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian today launched plans for an extensive renovation of its newly acquired Irvine center. The project is expected to cost about $84 million and will open as an acute care general hospital in 2010.
The health care center plans to incorporate a number of green building practices throughout the renovation and will put energy use, air quality and recycling at the forefront when selecting options for demolition, materials selection and construction.
“Sustainability and healing go hand-in-hand, so we’re modernizing health care delivery for Irvine by aligning the hospital with the needs of the community today and creating a platform for the future,” says Robert Braithwaite, chief administrative officer for Hoag Hospital Irvine.
Hoag – which earlier this year assumed a long-term lease for the center formerly known as Irvine Regional Hospital – seeks to bring state-of-the-art health care offerings to the 244,000-square-foot facility. Updates include operating rooms, nursing floors and imaging equipment, reconstructing pre- and post-surgery and recovery areas, and preparing space for new and innovative technology. The hospital will offer a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services, as well as a fully staffed emergency room.
