University of California, Irvine (UCI; Irvine, Calif.) broke ground on a new medical complex on its campus, according to an article in The Orange County Register.
The $1.3 billion project, situated on 202 acres on the northern edge of campus, will include clinical care, research, and specialty services, including cancer, neurology, internal medicine, and digestive health.
The first phase will include the 168,000-square-foot UCI Health Center for Advanced Care, which will include a Center for Autism & Neurodevelopmental Disorders. It’s scheduled to be completed in 2023.
A 144-bed hospital, with an emergency department, and the 225,000-square-foot Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center and Ambulatory Care outpatient building are also planned, with both facilities slated for completion in 2025.
