LOS ANGELES, Aug. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthCare Partners, a division of DaVita Medical Group and a part of DaVita Inc. (NYSE: DVA), today celebrated the opening of a new state-of-the-art medical facility and urgent care clinic in downtown Los Angeles at Washington Boulevard and Hoover Street. The new facility replaces the roughly 40-year-old founding clinic of HealthCare Partners and establishes a health care hub in the Pico-Union neighborhood on the west side of downtown Los Angeles.
"This is a major milestone for our medical group and the downtown Los Angeles community," said Jim Rechtin, California regional president for HealthCare Partners. "In the 1970s, a medical group that would become known as HealthCare Partners set out with a simple goal - to better serve patients by making health care more team-based and collaborative. That all started at 1025 W. Olympic Blvd. and ever since it has helped multiple generations in this community live healthier lives."
Less than one-and-a-half miles from its previous location on Olympic Boulevard, the new downtown Los Angeles facility relocated to a brand new, 60,000 square foot, four-story facility at 1120 W. Washington Blvd. The clinic is connected to a nine-story parking structure with no-cost parking available to patients. The facility accommodates a variety of patient care operations including:
• On-site radiology and lab services
• Pain management
• Wound clinic
• Behavioral health
• Women's wellness
• Internal medicine
• Comprehensive care clinic
• Family medicine
• General surgery
• 24/7 urgent care
"We are thrilled to have HealthCare Partners as the anchor tenant of Downtown West Medical," said Robert Hanasab, principal of Robhana Group. "We look forward to bringing additional healthcare providers to complement HealthCare Partners in our forthcoming next phases of the campus's development. We see this is as the beginning of a healthcare hub of the downtown Los Angeles area."
Drawing on years of experience as well as input from current patients and HealthCare Partners' teammates (employees), the new facility is enhanced with the patient experience in mind while being reflective of the diverse local community it will serve. Multi-lingual signage and information is placed throughout the building and bi-lingual care teams are on site to assist Spanish speaking patients.
"We're happy to welcome HealthCare Partners' new medical facility and urgent care clinic to the First Council District," said Gil Cedillo, Los Angeles Councilmember. "Not only will the new facility bring much needed jobs and economic activity to the area, it will also bring valuable medical services to the Pico Union/University Park communities."
The new facility has been described as one of the largest health care projects ever in the downtown Los Angeles area.
"It's been an honor to turn Robhana Group's vision of a next-generation healthcare campus in downtown Los Angeles into the landmark development that Downtown West Medical has become," said Inception Property Group's founding partner Peter Becronis. "The lightning speed at which Downtown West went from initial vision to rapid completion speaks to the incredible contributions by everyone involved."
HealthCare Partners invites the community to attend an open house event and tour the new downtown Los Angeles facility Saturday, Aug. 25, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
