Outpatient Projects: PMB developing MOB at California U.


By John Mugford

A three-story, 68,000 square foot facility being developed on the campus of Western University of Health Sciences in Ponoma, Calif., is slated to house three of the university’s newly formed teaching colleges.

The future Patient Care Center, as Western is calling the facility, would house the schools of dentistry, optometry and podiatry. The facility would also be used by the university’s college of osteopathic medicine.

The developer of the facility is San Diego-based Pacific Medical Buildings (PMB), a longtime West Coast developer of medical office buildings (MOBs), hospital parking structures and other healthcare facilities.

The new building will accommodate multi-disciplinary teaching, clinics and office space. The outpatient clinic would be staffed by Western University faculty and be open to the general public. Other services in the Patient Care Center will include a pharmacy, optometry clinic and an outpatient dental clinic.

According to the university’s CFO and treasurer, Kevin Shaw, the project has been put on a fast-track and is slated for completion in the fall of this year.

For PMB, the project is one of 12 totaling 750,000 square feet that are under development. Since its founding in the mid-1970s, the company says it has developed 75 healthcare facilities; it now owns and manages more than 30 facilities with a total of more than 2.5 million square feet.
