Perhaps the most visible evidence of El Camino Hospital's facilities master plan is the New Main Hospital in Mountain View, which celebrated its grand opening at the end of 2009. But there is much more to it. The Facilities Master Plan guides the development of the campus to meet our strategic organizational needs in the decades to come. It includes the major projects discussed on this page.
These new projects will require an update to the approved Master Plan, and will require the approval of the City of Mountain View, which sets limits on the amount and type of development allowed on the campus.
Below are the key elements of the Master Plan for the Mountain View campus.
Behavioral Health Building
As part of the continued commitment to the mental health of our community, plans are underway to expand the program, which includes the construction of a new two-story facility. The inpatient unit will have access to three enclosed courtyards, providing patients with access to an outdoor environment.
Expansion of North Drive Parking Structure
The expansion of the four-story parking structure will add approximately 300 spaces to the campus. Both the existing garage and the addition will feature photovoltaic panels, which will reduce our energy demand while providing shade for cars parked on the top level.
Integrated Medical Office Building
A new Integrated Medical Office Building will include space for hospital support and outpatient services, which are currently located in the old main hospital. It will also include medical office space to replace current medical office space on the upper floors of the Women's Hospital. Teams are currently working with clinicians to identify space needs for this building.
On the first floor, the concourse will wrap around an enlarged central courtyard, creating a loop that connects it to the new main hospital.
The expansion of women's services will allow us to serve our growing community. Capital projects include the expansion of the NICU, Labor & Delivery rooms, and the transition of double occupancy rooms to all private mother-baby rooms.
