Proposed Urgent Care


In September 2018, Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center submitted an application for Development Review to demolish an existing 5,000 square foot cardiac rehab building and remove a 112-stall parking lot on the 19-acre campus to construct:

  • a new one-story, 34,500 square foot (44 bed) Emergency Department (ER);
  • a new one-story, 8,500 square foot (12 bed) Urgent Care; and
  • other site improvements, such as new pedestrian sidewalks, midblock crossings, and new landscaping.

The existing 13,800 square foot Emergency Department (ER) is proposed to be utilized for hospital-related uses. In total, the campus will have 1,488 parking spaces predominately located in the existing parking structures on site. The property is located in the MDM-1 (Media District Industrial) zoning district within the Media District Specific Plan area. (Click on site map below to open in PDF).
