UC Davis Medical Center details $1.9B expansion

UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, Calif., plans to invest $1.9 billion in expansion and renovation projects over the next 10 years, according to the Sacramento Business Journal.

Some of the largest projects in the 10-year development plan include a 1.15-million-square-foot addition for a planned satellite campus in Sacramento, a new 800,000-square-foot hospital tower and a 57,000-square-foot ambulatory surgery center. 

With the projects, UC Davis Medical Center is expected to increase its building square footage from 3.5 million to 6.2 million.

The new medical center tower will have a minimum of 200 inpatient beds and the new ASC will have 270 exam rooms.

"We have an aggressive plan to more than double the number of ambulatory clinic spaces," David Lubarsky, MD, CEO of UC Davis Health, told the Business Journal.

UC Davis also plans to add 1,200 parking spaces to its campus, build a cancer center and update all of its facilities to resist earthquakes.
