JV Completes Construction of Adventist Health Medical Center Tehachapi Valley Hospital
TEHACHAPI, CALIF. — A joint venture between Bernards and Colombo Construction has completed construction of the new $90 million Adventist Health Medical Center Tehachapi Valley hospital, the only critical-access remote facility within a 50-mile radius to the rural Tehachapi and Mojave communities. The acute care facility replaces an outdated hospital that no longer met California safety standards.
The hospital includes medical/surgical beds, intensive care beds and an obstetrical unit (labor and delivery/post and ante partum), as well as a complete emergency services department, anesthesia services, a radiology/imaging center, a clinical laboratory, diabetic services space, a pharmacy and nearly 16,000 square feet for administrative offices. Public spaces include indoor/outdoor seating that flows into a healing and wellness garden.
SWA Architects designed the project.
