One Medical Office Building and Inpatient Building B to be removed from plan.
Henry Mayo and their partner G&L realty issued a letter to the City of Santa Clarita’s Community Development Department that notified them of changes to their twenty five year Master Plan for expansion.
“We now propose to eliminate the Inpatient Building B and the Administrative/Medical Office Building previously included in the “build-out phase” of the HMNMH Master Plan,” the letter said.
“Build-out Phase” is also referred to as phase three.
Henry Mayo and G&L requested to maintain Parking Structure 4, which was included in phase three, to comply with the City’s parking space requirements.
Parking structure 5, which was also in phase three was not mentioned. It was not listed as a building they would remove from the plan, however it also does not appear on the list of buildings still in the plan.
Other changes include:
Reconfiguration of 9,770 square feet of current administrative space in the Main Hospital to accommodate up to 20 ICU beds. The administrative functions will be relocated to Medical Office Building 1.
Demolition of the 8,000 square foot Foundation Building.
Now, Henry Mayo says that the Plan will include three medical office buildings, four parking structures and one inpatient building (A).
They hope that these reductions in the overall square footage will aid in getting their Master Plan passed through the City Council.
The full build-out of the campus expansion had been an issue with City planning officials, because predicting traffic patterns and impacts twenty five years in the future is near impossible.
One solution to this problem that was discussed was to remove phase three from the plan entirely, so that the traffic impacts could be realistically evaluated.
It is not clear if this is why Henry Mayo removed these two buildings from phase three.
