Work continues on 55,000 square-foot outpatient pavilion
Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC) celebrated a major milestone with The Robert and Beverly Lewis Outpatient Pavilion this week. At a topping out ceremony, the final steel beam for the new outpatient pavilion was installed, marking the completion of the steel work.
Once completed in January 2015, the new 55,000-square-foot Robert and Beverly Lewis Outpatient Pavilion will include five outpatient surgery suites, 20 prep and recovery beds, physical therapy and rehabilitation services and pre-admission testing. PVHMC will also offer a full service, state-of-the-art physical therapy department providing comprehensive cardiac rehab and physical, occupational, and speech therapy services.
During the building phase, approximately 660 construction and contracting jobs will have been created and PVHMC is making every effort to purchase construction materials and supporting services from regional suppliers to keep money in the community.
The outpatient pavilion is designed with an eye toward the environment and will be Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified.
Over the next several years, the PVHMC master plan construction project will expand facilities, including new emergency room capabilities, and increased hospital services, all with the goal to improve the overall patient and visitor experience. A new lobby entrance opens in mid-March. These renovations will provide increased capacity and ensure quality healthcare for PVHMC patients for generations to come.
