Inland Valley Medical Center received unanimous approval from the City Council, paving the way for the construction of a seven-story, 290,000-square-foot hospital tower building that will accommodate 202 total patient beds. The approval allows expansion of the trauma center to move forward.
The Planning Commission approved the project to proceed to council at a meeting where the approval of the project was met with applause from the Planning Commissioners.
“Inland Valley Medical Center is a tremendous asset as the only trauma center in Southwest Riverside County,” says Mayor Ben Benoit. “The $333 million investment they are making into the city of Wildomar will greatly benefit the region not only with improved healthcare services, but 220 full-time equivalent jobs and a myriad of economic development benefits for our city and the region as a whole. We applaud Universal Health System and Southwest Healthcare for making this happen.”
