Temecula Valley Hospital



Residents of Temecula, California – a city with a population of 97,000 situated between San Diego and Los Angeles – now have the benefit of access to a new community hospital. The Temecula Valley Hospital is a key component of a larger development plan for a healthcare campus that includes medical office buildings, a fitness center, and provisions for a cancer center.

The five-story, 140-bed tower is a strong example of how an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) approach can improve project outcomes both during the design and construction phases, and after occupancy. Input from healthcare professionals during the design phase helped the team minimize the number of times a patient must move once admitted, as well as the distance care providers must travel between offices, nurses stations, supply areas and patient rooms.

The IPD approach and the application of lean construction methods which emphasizes deep collaboration and innovation throughout the construction process helped the team drive the project cost down to $1.1 million per bed, or nearly half the cost of the current California average of $2.0 million per bed. The team also completed the project in 19 months from the start of building foundations to the date of substantial completion, one of the fastest schedules for an acute care hospital in California, and four months faster than the team’s initial schedule.

Universal Health Services, Inc. (UHS), one of the largest hospital management companies in the United States, began operation of this new medical facility in October 2013. The Temecula Valley Hospital emphasizes UHS’ goal to bring quality healthcare to the expanding communities in the region. The resulting medical complex brings vital medical, surgical, and emergency services to Temecula.
