Providence Mission Hospital announced plans Monday for a major expansion that will include a 100-bed patient tower, along with new medical centers in Rancho Mission Viejo and San Clemente.

“The innovative three-part plan includes a substantial expansion of the Mission Viejo hospital campus and the development of two new multi-specialty health centers in San Clemente and Rancho Mission Viejo,” Providence Mission Hospital Chief Executive Seth Teigen said in a statement. “Caring for our neighbors is our primary mission, and having just celebrated our hospital’s 50th anniversary, we’re excited at the opportunity to grow with our growing community, and to continue providing care for the next 50.”

According to the hospital, the expansion is a $712 million project.

The new patient tower at the hospital will include operating suites and cardiac catheterization labs, in addition to the 100 beds, officials said. A multi-specialty ambulatory surgery center will also be built on the campus.

The new medical centers in San Clemente and Rancho Mission Viejo will offer “high acuity urgent care services staffed by emergency medicine physicians, a full-service imaging center with advanced diagnostics, and a multi-specialty clinic with primary care physicians, OB/GYNs and other specialty care providers,” according to Providence.

An exact timeline for the project was not immediately announced.
