Document Description
Kaiser Permanente is proposing the redevelopment of approximately 15.5 acres of the existing 37.5-acre Medical Center in the City of Riverside to expand acute care medical service facilities and ancillary uses (proposed project). The expansion of the existing Medical Center is proposed to address the need for additional adult single occupancy and neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) beds, increase the capacity of operating rooms and interventional radiology, improve parking, and increase functional efficiencies in key clinical services, including the emergency department. The proposed Project consists of a new, approximately 180,474-square-foot, five-story hospital tower with 152 new beds for a total number of 359 beds upon Project completion, a new 115,526 square foot two-story diagnostic and treatment (D&T) building, a 5-story (6 decks)1,200-space aboveground parking structure, and upgrades to the existing central utility plant, including installation of a new emergency generator. The Project also includes ancillary features such as a new patient drop-off canopy, driveways, walkways, surface parking, landscaping, lighting, and signage. During construction, the Project will develop and utilize two off-site temporary parking areas for construction trailer and employee parking totaling approximately 6.31 acres. Project construction would occur over an approximate 4½ -year period in two major build phases: one for the parking structure and the other for the new hospital tower and D&T building.
