Development is underway for a 56,000-square-foot, two-story ambulatory care medical office building on the San Antonio Regional Hospital campus in Upland, Calif., that will include a City of Hope community cancer center. PMB is providing program management, development and design management services for the project on behalf of San Antonio Regional Hospital.

The new building is part of a larger, campus-wide project that involves construction of a new four-story patient tower, which opened in January 2017. The new Vineyard Tower has 92 private rooms, including a 12-bed critical care unit, as well as a new, 8,000-square-foot emergency department with 52 beds and three major treatment rooms.

The new medical office building will be situated on a three-acre site located across from the hospital’s main entrance. It will replace an existing, functionally obsolete medical office building which is predominately comprised of hospital administrative services.  The building will be demolished and the staff will be relocated to other campus buildings.

City of Hope will lease approximately 25,000 square feet for a community cancer center. Services will include radiation therapy, infusion services, hematology and medical oncology, general surgical oncology, related surgical subspecialties and clinical trials. The new building will also house San Antonio Regional Hospital’s Women’s Breast and Imaging Center, a community resource center and medical offices.

The design of the new medical office building will complement the hospital’s new Vineyard Tower and the local surroundings with the use of a glass curtain wall, metal wall panels and native landscaping. Sustainable design and building practices will be implemented throughout. The building will feature custom-designed medical office suites and parking located next to the building.

Construction is scheduled to begin the second quarter of 2017, and the building is projected to open in Fall 2018.

In addition to PMB serving as program manager, HMC Architects is providing architectural services. Millie and Severson will serve as the project’s general contractor.
