Southwest Healthcare System’s Rancho Springs Medical Center Campus in Murrieta and Inland Valley Medical Center Campus in Wildomar broke ground today on significant expansion and renovation plans. The facility master plan, comprising both Inland Valley Medical Center and Rancho Springs Medical Center, will total more than $400 million, the largest expansion investment to date committed by parent company Universal Health Services, a perennial Fortune 500 company.
The expansion and renovation at Rancho Springs will focus on Women’s and Children’s Services with the aim of establishing, in conjunction with Rady Children’s San Diego, the first pediatric inpatient unit in the region. Inland Valley will feature a seven-story tower with a continuation of award-winning services of bariatric weight-loss surgery, the total joint program for hip, knee, and shoulder replacement, as well as surgical services for spine and the region’s only Level II American College of Surgeons (ACS) Verified Trauma Center.
Both campuses will be equipped with modern, private state-of-the-art patient rooms, installation of leading-edge clinical technologies for minimally invasive procedures and advanced therapies, and globally sustainable infrastructure enhancements including energy-efficient LED fixtures and solar panels. The project is currently anticipated to be completed in phases over the course of the next two to five years, with particular focus to ensure that the facilities remain open for patient care with minimal disruption.
“This is an historic day for Southwest Healthcare System and the communities we serve,” stated Jared Giles, CEO of Southwest Healthcare System. “The hospital campus at Inland Valley will be transformed into one of the largest healthcare facilities in the region and Rancho Springs is excited to continue our amazing relationship with Rady Children’s Hospital, San Diego. We are proud to be able to elevate the delivery of care that will benefit generations to come.”
