Community Medical Center
Using a portion of the land the Agency transferred to Community Regional Medical Centers (CRMC), the hospital and Penstar Development Group are constructing an 88,000 square feet, 4-story office building that will house a state-of-the-art Neuro-Surgery Center, turning CMC into one of five “Level-One” Trauma Centers in California. Adjacent to this new office building, a $28 million, six-deck parking structure with 1,153 parking spaces will be constructed, along with a sky-bridge connecting the facility to the hospital. Construction began in mid-February 2008, and is expected to be completed by summer 2009.

CRMC is trying to attract an expansion of the UC Medical School system. If successful, CRMC would be a main site for training for distributive education, which will help realize the hospital's goal of becoming a regional academic medical center.
