ABOUT

  • Multi-phase expansion project that is the largest since Mammoth Hospital opened its doors in 1978.
  • The new building will provide state-of-the art facilities that will allow Mammoth Hospital to maintain advanced, local inpatient medical care and comprehensive preventative care.
  • Slated to begin in the spring of 2024 with an expected completion in 2028.

THE WHY

  • The project is necessary for Mammoth Hospital to comply with the Alquist Act (SB1953) by Jan 1, 2030, which requires that hospitals in the State of California be seismic compliant or could risk losing their licensure.
  • Mammoth Hospital has seen a 162% increase in our outpatient procedures (endo/colonoscopies) in the last 10 years. The current facility is not adequate to provide proper care to our patients.
  • In the event of a natural disaster, such as a wildfire or earthquake, Mammoth Hospital needs to be structurally sound to provide a place where residents and visitors can shelter safely.
  • Removal of asbestos.
  • The outdated current facility was built in 1978 and it lacks the modern facilities needed for today’s patient care services.
