Temecula Valley Hospital’s first floor expansion project broke ground a year ago. The hospital is adding a 28,000 square foot addition to the east side of the hospital. The ever growing Temecula population has increased the demand for more medical treatment facilities. This addition will allow the hospital to expand its cardiovascular, stroke and surgical services sectors.
The expansion project includes two catheterization labs (an exam room that has medical equipment to help visualize the arteries of the heart), seven post-anesthesia care unit bays, seven pre/post-operative care bays, a neuro biplane root (the biplane system produces highly detailed three-dimensional views of blood vessels leading to the brain and deep within the brain), an endovascular hybrid operating room (dealing with procedures involving blood vessels), a new CT scanner and a community room for educational presentations and events.
The expansion is scheduled to open later this summer. The Temecula area population growth has called for an increase in individual healthcare needs. Although the Temecula Valley hospital is a for profit facility, it has been a regional leader in advanced medical technology.
