Washington Hospital and the UC San Francisco Medical Center are jointly eyeing a nearly 90,000 square-foot building in Fremont, Calif., as a future outpatient care center. According to an article in the East Bay Times, the concept received early support from the Fremont City Council earlier this month.

Reporter Joseph Geha writes: Without any discussion, the council approved rezoning the 5.2-acre industrial plot of land at 45388 Warm Springs Blvd.—which includes an 88,000 square-foot, two-story building previously used by Unigen Corporation for electronics manufacturing — to allow for outpatient care in the area.”

The project reportedly could include “anything short of acute care, which is offered at the main hospital and emergency center in central Fremont.”
