This 93,132 square-foot location is a two-story extension of our hospital that will expand our capabilities and give some of our departments more space and access to new equipment and technology. This is also a building that was carefully planned, with details and thoughtful designs in every area to enhance the patient experience, from the colors, art and décor to the lighting and use of natural daylight.

One of the areas moving into this new location is the clinical lab, which has now nearly tripled in size. We were able to add new equipment so the lab can work more efficiently and complete tests that were previously sent to Riverside. This means that our physicians and patients will have shorter wait times for test results, saving six to eight hours in some cases.

Imaging is also moving to a much larger space and adding capabilities. In the past, we had one CT machine and one ultrasound machine used for emergency patients. Now we have two CT machines and four Ultrasound machines. We also have added interventional radiology services and have a permanent home for our MRI in a calming environment that is more comfortable for our members and patients. And because mammograms are an important tool in detecting cancer earlier, when it is more easily treatable, Mammography is also a service that we will be offering in the new building. 

The surgery area has grown from three operating rooms to six. Each room is well equipped for many procedures, and we have added the latest DaVinci robot, which enables minimally invasive robotic surgeries, as well as an Ear, Nose and Throat Navigation System. This tool allows for more precise image-guided surgery to be performed. Again, enabling less invasive procedures that result in faster recovery times and better outcomes.

And that’s what this is all about – it’s about providing our members, patients and community with exceptional care. 

For pre-surgery and post-surgery care, we’ve also added a new PACU or post-anesthesia care unit. This is a 28-bed unit where our patients will be readied for surgery and where they will be monitored after surgery as they recover. 

Lastly, we have a new NICU or Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, which has been planned to greet our newborns and their families with a sense of calmness and warmth.  This is a Level 2 NICU for babies born 32 weeks and above that offers 24/7 neonatal support from board certified neonatologists and pediatricians, as well as the NICU nursing teams. There are 6 beds in the unit, which are state of the art bassinettes that enable the NICU team to carefully monitor our tiny patients. Even while a baby is being transported from delivery to the NICU, the bassinette syncs with our system so there are no gaps in monitoring their vital signs. This helps with safety and patient outcomes.

We know our members, patients and community rely on us for their care, that’s why we’re excited to welcome you to our newly expanded Kaiser Permanente Moreno Valley Medical Center.
