Inland Valley Medical Center is administered by Southwest Healthcare System and is owned and operated by a subsidiary of Universal Health Services of King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. The city council in Wildomar, California unanimously approved a $333 million expansion proposal for Inland Valley Medical Center. 

Expansion of Inland Valley Medical Center

The project involves the extension of the trauma center as well as a seven-story, 290,000-square-foot tower. There will be 202 patient beds in the tower. According to the news release, the investment will result in the creation of 220 full-time equivalent employment opportunities.

The facility, located at 36485 Inland Valley Drive, will be expanded in parts over the next two to five years, according to authorities. During construction, the campus will remain open.

Better Treatment of Patients

The expansion of Inland Valley Medical Center will benefit the patients. It will provide them with a more convenient and accessible health care facility. The new facility will make it easier for them to access the services provided by this hospital.

The expansion of Inland Valley Medical Center will also increase the number of doctors in the area. This means that there are more chances that the patient can get the right treatment at a time when they need it most. The new facility will also have enough room for patients to stay after they have been discharged from the hospital. This means that they would not have to stay at home alone while recovering from their injuries or illnesses.

The expansion of Inland Valley Medical Center will also help improve the quality of life for those living in this area. They can now enjoy better medical services because there is no longer a long waiting time before receiving treatment from doctors or nurses who are qualified enough to treat their condition effectively and efficiently.

Mayor Ben Benoit of Wildomar praised the expansion.

β€œThe $333 million investment they are making into the city of Wildomar will greatly benefit the region; not only with improved healthcare services but 220 full-time equivalent jobs and a myriad of economic development benefits for our city,” 

Mayor Ben Benoit

According to the press release, Inland Valley Medical Center is one of two medical campuses operated by Southwest Healthcare System, administered by a subsidiary of the parent firm Universal Health Services. Rancho Springs Medical Center in Murrieta and Temecula Valley Hospital, both run by Universal Health Services, are undergoing multimillion-dollar improvements.

Jared Giles, CEO of Southwest Healthcare System, said in the release that the expansion will transform the hospital into β€œone of the largest healthcare facilities in the region.”

Inland Valley Medical Center Campus

Southwest Healthcare System is the only hospital in the area to provide Level II Trauma Services, an Advanced Certified Primary Stroke Center, a Total Joint Center with advanced Joint Commission certification for hip and knee surgery, as well as core certification for shoulder surgery, and Joint Commission-certified Spine Services. 

The Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program has designated Inland Valley as a nationally recognized center for weight-loss surgery, and it has been granted the Blue Distinction for superior bariatric surgical services.

The expansion of Inland Valley Medical Center is a good thing because it serves as an example for other hospitals around California and beyond who want to follow suit so that they may also benefit from these changes.
