BEAUMONT, CA-One hospital has finished a medical office project here and another has reached a milestone at a development in Fontana, underscoring the demand for medical offices that―many observers believe―will be spurred even further by the health care legislation voted in by the US Congress this past weekend.

The completed project, a development of Loma Linda University Medical Center, is an 85,000-square-foot off-campus medical plaza that consolidates four independent healthcare organizations and more than dozen different healthcare services in two separate buildings. The project that has reached a milestone is Kaiser Permanente’s Fontana Replacement Hospital, where officials recently marked its progress with a beam signing ceremony and expect the final steel beam to be raised into place within the next several weeks.

The Loma Linda Medical Center project was developed by for the university by Chicago-based Lillibridge. The new three-level, project is called Highland Springs Medical Plaza and was “fraught with extraordinary challenges” from a development standpoint, according to Lillibridge. The Chicago-based developer explains that, when executives of Loma Linda University Medical Center decided to build two new facilities about 15 miles away, the project “marked the first significant foray beyond the university’s main campus.” The new facilities would serve residents of Beaumont as well as the surrounding communities of Cherry Valley, Banning, Cabazon, Calimesa, Yucaipa and Oak Glen.
