Emanate Health Holds Groundbreaking for Medical Office Building in West Covina, CA

We were excited to take part in a groundbreaking ceremony with Emanate Health for its new Medical Office Building at its Queen of the Valley Hospital site in West Covina.

The office building will center around cancer care, along with an ambulatory surgery center with four operating rooms and 12 pre- and post-op stations. The 60,000-sf center will house radiation oncology, 20 infusion bays with two private chemotherapy rooms, 24 exam rooms, a compounding pharmacy and lab services.

“It will house a wonderful and very academic-oriented cancer center for our residents,” said Emanate Health CEO Robert H. Curry.

This project creates two major entrances to the facility, one from a parking structure to the north as well as a main entrance from the south adjacent to the easily accessible drop-off area for patients, loved ones and visitors. With the cancer services on the first floor, the second floor will be home to specialty clinic exam rooms as well as geriatrics and internal medicine exam rooms. This facility will keep certain ambulatory and cancer services local so community members don’t need to travel long distances for care.

“We have a community that is also aging, so to have a facility like this, residents don’t have to travel far to get this kind of treatment. They could be near home, it’s just a positive all the way around,” West Covina Council Member Brian Tabatabai told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune.

Present at the groundbreaking were the Mayor of West Covina, Letty Lopez-Viado, the West Covina City Council, Roger Sharma, President & CFO of Emanate Health and other Emanate Health leadership. Dave Hunt, our Southern California Health Practice Leader and Amit Bhargava, Project Manager, were also on site.

The building is scheduled to be completed in late 2022.
