Southwest Healthcare System’s Inland Valley Medical Center Campus in Wildomar on Tuesday announced expansion and renovation plans that include the construction of a new patient tower. The facility master plan, which also includes the expansion of Rancho Springs Medical Center Campus in Murrieta, will total more than $400 million, the largest expansion investment to date committed by parent company Universal Health Services (UHS).
The new seven-story patient tower at Inland Valley will feature modern, state-of-the-art private patient rooms, installation of leading-edge clinical technologies for minimally invasive procedures and advanced therapies.
The project is currently anticipated to be completed in phases over the course of the next two to five years, with particular focus to ensure that the facilities will remain open for patient care with minimal disruption.
“This is an incredible addition to our city,” said Wildomar Mayor Dustin Nigg. “Inland Valley Medical Center is a very important part of Wildomar, and we are so excited for the tremendous investment UHS is making in our community for our community.”
