Garnet Health Medical Center, formerly Orange Regional Medical Center, held a Groundbreaking Ceremony for its new parking garage on April 7. The 600+ space employee parking garage is being constructed adjacent to the Emergency Department and is expected to be complete in 2022.
The socially-distanced event commemorated a key phase of construction on the Emergency Department (ED) Expansion project. Already complete is the relocation and installation of a new helipad. Once the entire expansion project is finished, the ED, which currently has 51 treatment bays, will be double the size. Construction is expected to be complete in 2024.
“This employee parking garage is an important endeavor as it supports the expansion of services we provide to our community,” said Garnet Health Board of Directors Chair Don Beeler. “By creating new parking spaces for our employees, we will free up parking for our patients and visitors who come to Garnet Health Medical Center and Garnet Health Doctors.”
The event also marked the opening of the $7 million Every Minute Counts Capital Campaign to the public sector. The campaign, which has already raised $3 million, will benefit the expansion project and emergency care at Garnet Health Medical Center.
