San Ramon Regional Medical Center, John Muir Health Acquire Building to Establish New Pleasanton Outpatient Center

SAN RAMON & WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — San Ramon Regional Medical Center and John Muir Health have acquired a building with more than 92,000 square feet in Pleasanton, Calif., that will hold the new Pleasanton Outpatient Center. The center is expected to open in early 2015. The acquisition is part of the joint venture partnership announced in 2013 between Tenet Healthcare, parent company of the San Ramon Regional Medical Center, a 123-bed acute care hospital in San Ramon, Calif. and John Muir Health, a not-for-profit integrated system of doctors, hospitals and other healthcare services in the San Francisco Bay area, based in Walnut Creek.

“The Pleasanton Outpatient Center is another step toward fulfilling our goal to expand and improve care, access and services for patients in the growing Tri-Valley area and surrounding communities,” said Paul Smith, acting CEO of the joint venture. “The center will be more convenient for patients, who can access a full range of services under one roof, and allows us to work better as a team to coordinate care and enhance the patient experience.”

The center is projected to house primary care physicians, specialists, an urgent care center and imaging services. The building is conveniently located off Interstate 580, and is a short walk from the Dublin/Pleasanton BART station. Ample onsite parking will also be available.

“The design of John Muir Health’s recently opened Walnut Creek Outpatient Center was driven by the needs of patients — convenience, access, cost-effective care, service and quality — the same principles that will drive development of the Pleasanton facility,” said Lee Huskins, president and chief administrative officer of John Muir Health’s Physician Network. “Through our partnership with San Ramon Regional Medical Center, we look forward to providing the Tri-Valley community expanded choices for high-quality, patient-centered care, close to home in a modern, healing environment.”
