As part of its $642 million renovation, the Providence Tarzana Medical Center has plans to expand by nearly 292,000 square feet.

The project calls for enhancing the the hospital lobby and expanding the diagnostic and treatment sections, as well as constructing a new patient wing and utility plant, according documents recently filed with city planning.

Located at 18321 Clark Street, the 13-acre hospital compound currently includes four permanent buildings, eight modular buildings and a parking structure. A new 650-spot parking structure would also be part of the renovations.

Before construction of the new spaces, developers would first demolish the eight modular buildings, one of the other permanent buildings that’s used for MRIs and the pharmacy within the hospital. About 17,948 square feet of existing floor area would be removed.

The project will provide more than 1,000 construction jobs, according to Providence Tarzana Medical Center’s announcement of the renovation in May.

“We’ll have the latest technology, the latest safety features and private patient rooms, creating a very patient-friendly atmosphere to ensure easy access and comfort,” Providence Tarzana chief executive Dale Surowitz said in a statement.

Approval pending, the project could break ground as early as 2017 and be completed by the end of 2022, according to the hospital.
