Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital to Proceed With Master Plan
Date:11/25/2008

VALENCIA, Calif., Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital in Valencia, California, has received approval from the local City Council to proceed with its $300 million master plan. The plan calls for the development of a new patient wing and three new medical buildings, plus a helipad and new parking structures.

Opened in 1975, the not-for-profit hospital has seen tremendous growth in the surrounding Santa Clarita Valley and thus developed the 15-year master plan to assure that community residents would have local access to their increasing healthcare needs. The plan includes the addition of up to 120 beds, private rooms in maternity, more surgery suites, the expansion of high-demand areas, and the addition of key clinical services not currently found at the hospital. The plan also calls for the development of Centers of Excellence in important clinical areas as well as the re-establishment of a helipad, which will allow the hospital to retain its designation as the only trauma center in the Santa Clarita Valley.

"By approving the master plan, our City Council paved the way for enhanced quality of care along with greater access, more choice and more programs to serve our community," said Hospital Chief Executive Officer Roger Seaver. "Now fewer people will have to travel out of the area for care, and we can truly turn our hospital into the kind of healthcare campus our community will need in the 21st century."

Part of the medical campus will include the development of three new medical buildings. It is expected that these new buildings will help current physician practices to grow and allow the hospital to recruit new specialists who will covet to the opportunity to work on an integrated healthcare campus with easy access to a variety of services, resources and caregivers. In addition, the medical buildings will house such programs as outpatient services and care, diagnostic services, imaging and Centers of Excellence plus administration, education and human resources.

"All medical buildings are dedicated to healthcare delivery and will be built to support our mission of service," said Seaver. "Using these buildings in this way will free-up valuable hospital space for more patient beds and clinical programs/services. And because operating services out of a medical building rather than a hospital costs less, the hospital will save money that as a not-for-profit we can reinvest back into the facility toward improvements, new services, capital equipment and staffing."

Henry Mayo's new campus is being designed to not only meet all environmental impact requirements but to balance the need for growth with neighborhood quality-of-life issues such as noise, traffic and lighting. All expansion will take place on the existing hospital medical campus.

With more than 1,100 employees, Henry Mayo is currently the fifth largest employer in the Santa Clarita Valley. It is anticipated that the new construction will have a significant, positive economic impact on the community in terms of business revenue, wages and taxes. It will also add to more long-term, high-wage jobs.

Seaver said that the hospital's goal is to begin architectural plans for the hospital immediately, begin construction on the first medical office building in 2009, and break ground on the new patient wing within four years. The $300 million project will be funded through operations, bonds and philanthropy through Henry Mayo ($200 million) plus private investment by G&L Realty ($100 million).
