and hospital leadership attended the event at the site of the new pavilion.
With over 135,000 children living in the desert region, the Indio Outpatient Pavilion will be a welcome addition to the Coachella Valley.
Focus groups were conducted with residents and parents of children in the region and revealed the need for a dedicated pediatric urgent care and crucial pediatric specialty services like pulmonology, neurology, cardiology and endocrinology to name a few. With this variety of services, the Indio clinic will be able to accommodate more than 60,000 unique pediatric visits each year. Additionally, this project will create more than 40 new employment opportunities.
The pavilion will also offer an outpatient pharmacy and retail space. The renovations of ancurrently existing building will begin soon in hopes of opening doors to the new pavilion in late 2017.
The construction and design teams assigned to the project are Hanna Construction and CallisonRTKL architects.
