Providence is investing $712 million in southern Orange County, California, to build two new multi-specialty medical centers and a new patient care tower at Providence Mission Hospital.

The new patient tower will feature operating theaters, cardiac catheterization labs and nearly 100 new private patient rooms. It will allow Providence Mission to significantly improve its neuroscience center of excellence, cardiovascular programs and maternity services, the health system said.

The hospital will also build a new multidisciplinary outpatient surgery center on campus. This will streamline patient surgical care, attract new physician partners and offer the latest minimally invasive care options.

WHY THIS MATTERS

The expansion is designed to meet the growing demand for healthcare in the area, Providence said.

The two new multi-specialty health centers in Rancho Mission Viejo and San Clemente will improve access, provide high-acute acuity emergency care services staffed by ER physicians, have a full-service imaging center with advanced diagnostics, and a multi-specialty clinic with primary care physicians, Obstetricians/gynecologists and other specialist healthcare providers.

“The innovative three-part plan includes a significant expansion of Mission Viejo’s hospital campus and the development of two new multidisciplinary health centers in San Clemente and Rancho Mission Viejo,” added Seth Teigen, chief executive of Providence Mission Hospital.

THE BIGGER TREND

Mission Hospital, a 504-bed regional acute care medical center in Mission Viejo, California, is part of Providence, a 52-hospital, non-profit, integrated Catholic healthcare system.

Providence announced today that it is advancing surgical robotics with the acquisition of AquaBeam Robotic Systems. The national contract was signed in collaboration with PROCEPT BioRobotics Corporation, a surgical robotics company specializing in urology.
