UC-Davis Construction Addresses Seismic Demands

California’s earthquake safety standards for facilities, which take effect in 2030, continue to exert huge influence on the plans of the state’s healthcare systems.

UC Davis Health recently announced it will invest $3.75 billion into a campus expansion that includes ensuring the campus meets the state's new earthquake safety mandates, according to Becker’s Hospital Review

The preliminary plan calls for building a 16-story inpatient hospital and a five-story pavilion. Those structures would replace existing patient care facilities that are not seismically retrofitted. 

Upon completion, the new hospital will house 700 licensed beds, up from the 625 UC Davis now has. The square footage of the new hospital will be nearly double to accomodate a higher number of private rooms.
