ASC, medical building & more would add 50% to California hospital's footprint

Queen of the Valley Hospital in West Covina, Calif., proposed a multiyear development project that would bring an ASC to the area by 2022, according to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune.

Four details:

1. The renovation and construction project would increase the hospital's square footage by nearly 50 percent, adding 490,000 square feet to the hospital's existing 1 million square feet.

2. The first phase of construction would involve establishing a medical office building, an ASC and a parking structure, as well as updating the emergency room and ICU, from 2020 to 2022.

3. For the following four years, the hospital would focus on building a medical office tower with up to six stories. Several new buildings and an additional parking structure would be added later down the line.

4. Community residents had the opportunity to comment on the project May 14. A representative of the nearby Torrey Pines Apartment Homes was the only person to comment, proposing limitations on the height of the hospital's planned parking lot.
