As work continues on the new 175,000 square foot Canyon Vista Regional Health Center, construction of the new on-campus medical office building has reached a milestone. Earlier this month the steel framing for the 55,000 square foot medical office building was completed, and to commemorate the occasion, a beam signing ceremony was held.
Administrators and staff from Canyon Vista Regional Health Center were present at the event, as were local officials and members of the project development team.
“The new medical office building will be a great addition to the new hospital campus,” said Marty Rash, Chairman and CEO, RegionalCare Hospital Partners. “It is exciting to allow the team involved to sign the beam, and then place it on the new building.”
Florida-based Rendina Healthcare Real Estate is developing the new medical office building. Richard Rendina, Chairman and CEO, said the new medical building is intended to complement the new hospital while providing an enhanced environment with direct access to both acute and outpatient services.
The replacement hospital is expected to open in spring 2015. The new medical office building is expected to open in conjunction with the new hospital.
Dr. Dean French, CEO of Canyon Vista Regional Health Center, who was present at the beam signing, emphasized that the new hospital is part of Canyon Vista Regional Health Center’s commitment to expand healthcare options to the community and bring greater economic opportunities to the area.

The new Medical Office building improves access to key services for our community and patients. It provides a one-stop shop for multiple medical practices that will include OB/GYN, pediatrics, internal medicine, cardiology, orthopedics, sports medicine and general surgery. Additionally, it will provide advanced wound care with hyperbaric oxygen, adult and pediatric rehabilitation, and chemotherapeutic infusion services. The consolidation of all of these services under one roof will drastically improve clinical integration and increase efficiency in care.
