$15 million grant for pediatrics unit
Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center will construct a 15-bed pediatric inpatient unit with funds from a $15 million grant from the California Health Facilities Financing Authority (CHFFA) to expand access to healthcare for pediatric patients.
The unit will replace the hospital’s 34-bed pediatric unit.
“While the new unit will hold fewer beds, the layout will allow the hospital to provide safer more modern and efficient care in private and semi-private rooms,” said a hospital spokesperson. “It will continue to be staffed by pediatric hospitalists and neonatologists through an affiliation with CHOC Children’s.
Nine rooms will be private and three will be semi-private that can accommodate large families, sibling admissions and surge capacity.
Construction is expected to be completed in December 2022.
