Successful Satellite Building Depends on Design

With two separate buildings, four independent healthcare organizations, and more than 12 different healthcare services – all consolidated in Loma Linda University Medical Center’s first major satellite facility – plans for a new off-campus medical plaza in Beaumont, CA, were fraught with extraordinary challenges.

Lillibridge helped the medical center create the three-level, 85,000-square-foot Highland Springs Medical Plaza to integrate an array of outpatient medical services in a single, beautifully designed location.

When executives of Loma Linda University Medical Center (LLUMC) decided to build two new facilities, the project marked the first significant foray beyond the university’s main campus. The new facilities would serve residents of Beaumont, as well as the surrounding communities of Cherry Valley, Banning, Cabazon, Calimesa, Yucaipa, and Oak Glen. The strategy was to better serve California’s Inland Empire area – attracting new patients while reducing the need for current patients to travel to the main campus in Loma Linda.

The medical plaza – which had a projected price tag of about $42 million – was also a collaboration involving LLUMC, Faculty Practice Plan of Loma Linda University School of Medicine, Redlands Community Hospital, and Beaver Medical Group, making it LLUMC’s first major partnership with other healthcare providers.

“We knew this would be a complex project,” says Lillibridge Chairman & CEO Todd W. Lillibridge. The resulting Highland Springs Medical Plaza is a striking, two-building development that features a three-story, 68,300-square-foot medical office linked to a one-story, 16,900-square-foot surgery center with a dramatic rotunda.

The complex also includes a healing garden designed to promote physical and emotional healing. It includes water features, walking paths, meditation areas, and plant materials that help promote the natural healing process.
