Clovis Community Medical Center eyes $390M expansion

Clovis (Calif.) Community Medical Center will begin a $390 million, 144-bed expansion project in May after receiving final approval from the hospital's board of trustees April 3, according to The Fresno Bee.

The construction project will include constructing a five-story private room tower, a new parking garage and a 60,000-square-foot clinical and administrative building. In addition, the project calls for expanding the emergency room by 15,000 square feet and adding six operating rooms and 24 intensive care unit beds.

Upon completion of the project, which is expected to wrap up in 2022, the hospital will have 352 private beds.

Clovis Community Medical Center is one of four hospitals owned and operated by Fresno, Calif.-based Community Medical Centers.

"We need to significantly expand inpatient capacity in our hospital system, and this Clovis project is the quickest and most cost-effective way to do it," Tim Joslin, Community Medical Centers' president and CEO, said in a statement, according to The Fresno Bee.
