Dignity Health released its $215 million expansion and renovation plans, which would largely be comprised of constructing a 245-bed facility at its Downtown hospital campus.

The 150,000-square-foot building would rise at its California Hospital Medical Center campus, at 1401 South Grand Avenue.

The new facility will replace an existing structure that will be converted into an outpatient facility, according to the Los Angeles Business Journal. The new building alone will cost $205 million, according to Dignity Health’s news release outlining the project.

The hospital will also build a new pediatrics unit in a neighboring building, an emergency mental health observation center and a parking garage with ground-floor retail.

The project should break ground early next year, officials said.

The new building will have larger emergency and trauma departments, and 60 percent more beds than the older building. The hospital operates the busiest trauma center in L.A., and is operating over capacity, according to the release.

Last year, the medical center saw 85,000 patients in a space meant to accommodate 55,000.

Funding for the expansion includes a $125 million loan, $50 million in donations, and another $40 million put up by Dignity Health itself. [Los Angeles Business Journal]Dennis Lynch
