Los Angeles hospital furthers $542M expansion plan

Los Angeles-based Providence Tarzana Medical Center received a key approval from the LA City Council's Planning and Land Use Management Committee March 21, bringing its $542 million expansion project closer to fruition, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.

The proposed project includes constructing a patient wing with a pediatric intensive care unit, a parking structure with 565 spaces, and new surgical facilities. In addition, the expansion will also feature a renovated emergency department, larger patient rooms, a new central utility plant in the basement and an updated lobby.

If the project receives the greenlight from the full city council, the construction will begin later in 2018 and is expected to be completed by 2022.

Providence Tarzana CEO Dale Surowitz told the Los Angeles Daily News the aim of the expansion is to build a futuristic healthcare facility and "keep people in the Valley for care, as opposed to people thinking they have to leave … for those services."

The price tag of the expansion was initially $624 million when the project was first proposed in 2016; however, hospital officials found ways to cut its cost.
