Centinela Hospital Medical Center Capital Improvements and Renovation Projects

02-02-2017

Centinela Hospital Medical Center, a 369-bed acute-care hospital, has been serving the community of Inglewood and the greater Los Angeles area for more than 90 years. An award-winning facility, Centinela Hospital Medical Center’s mission is to offer comprehensive, quality healthcare in a convenient, compassionate and cost-effective manner.

The hospital’s dedication to the community it serves is evident by an $80 million expansion and renovation plans currently in progress. In May 2016, the Hospital completed a $55 million seismic retrofit project that included the unveiling of a new hospital front entrance, lobby, Admitting Department, Rehab, and waiting area. Additional remodeling and expansion projects under construction include: Emergency Department, Maternal Services and Labor & Delivery, Radiology, and Hybrid Cath Lab.

Serving more than 69,000 patients in 2016 alone, Centinela Hospital’s Emergency Department is one of the top 10 busiest privately run ER’s in Los Angeles County. To accommodate this patient flow and future growth, Centinela Hospital began a six-phase remodel and expansion project on its ER in early 2014. This project plan includes more than 10,000 square feet of additional space and increases the number of ER beds to 52 to allow the hospital’s doctors, nurses and staff to treat ER patients more efficiently in a soothing environment conducive to healing. In addition to the clinical areas, a new enlarged patient waiting area and patient friendly admitting department are part of the plan. Although the entire project won’t be completed until early 2018, the expanded section of the ER, which includes the new patient entrance, waiting room, admitting department and additional patient rooms, is set to be licensed and open in early 2017.

Further investing in its further, Centinela Hospital is expected to begin construction in early 2017 on its new Maternal Child Services Department that includes all-in-one, private Labor, Delivery & Recovery Rooms to ensure a positive birth experience for moms-to-be and the entire family.
