On October 10, Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital cut the ribbon on its brand-new hospital tower in Valencia, California. In attendance were HMC Architects’ team members Joann Chan, David Edwards, Giovanni Rodriguez and Kirk Rose, HMC’s design-build partner Bernards, Henry Mayo CEO Roger Seaver, COO Jonathan Miller, board members, medical staff, hospital donors, and community leaders.

The new six-story, 163,000-square-foot, 120-bed tower will serve the growing Santa Clarita population. It features a dedicated maternity floor, with seven labor and delivery rooms, 22 post- and antepartum rooms, and two C-section operating rooms. The tower houses three medical-surgical floors with unobstructed views from patient rooms, along with a new kitchen and cafeteria, and shell space for future expansion. Strategically located between three existing buildings, the new tower provides connected functionality and a cohesive campus aesthetic.

The hospital opened for patient care on October 27.
