Construction Progress


Interior and Exterior Work on New Hospital Building Shows Great Progress

If you’ve driven by the south side of the Simi Valley Hospital campus recently, you’ve seen the substantial progress that has been made on the hospital’s Emergency Services and Hospital Expansion Project. Construction is on schedule for an opening by the end of 2014.

By early June, exterior framing was complete, the building was sheathed, steel for the ambulance canopy had been erected and masonry retaining walls were under construction. Application of stucco and plaster to the exterior was scheduled to begin by the end of the month.

Inside the structure, all interior walls had been framed, and 75 percent of the interior mechanical, electrical and plumbing work was complete. Interior drywall work was set to commence by the end of June.

The $41 million project includes the new Thakkar Family Emergency Pavilion, which will add more than 5,000 square feet to the existing Emergency Department space and increase the number of patient care rooms from 10 to 22. In addition to the expanded emergency facilities, the building will house a new surgery suite, an equipment room and space to add more services in the future.
