At Work, At Home, At Play
As those in the retail, manufacturing, aerospace, engineering and service industry sectors already know, Palmdale is well positioned to help pilot new opportunities for businesses, including those in the medical field.
Palmdale boasts a solid inventory of office space available for lease or purchase, raw land to build on, and a growing community that desires world-class health care. Perhaps that’s why organizations such as Kaiser Permanente, Heritage Sierra Medical Group and Palmdale Regional Medical Center are among those who have chosen Palmdale to provide quality health care options for our residents.
Opportunities for growth abound in Palmdale. In particular, a medical hub anchored by Palmdale Regional Medical Center (PRMC), serves the region by providing high quality medical services to residents of the Antelope Valley, Santa Clarita Valley and surrounding communities. The hospital itself features 184 licensed acute care beds as well as inpatient and outpatient surgery, cardiac services featuring a STEMI Receiving Center (heart attack), a 35-bed 24-hour emergency department, and The Rehabilitation Institute – a 27-bed inpatient unit that provides rehabilitation for a wide range of conditions including stroke, brain injury/trauma, spinal cord injury and complex orthopedic issues.
Among its latest additions include the opening of a new 33,000 square foot maternity labor and delivery unit to include 25 private patient rooms, six labor/delivery/ recovery suites, two surgical suites, and a neonatal intensive care unit.
“The decision was made to move to Palmdale in part because of the incredible view on the hill but, more importantly, because of the ease of working with the City and its leadership.”
Richard Allen, CEO, Palmdale Regional
Located in close proximity to the hospital is a burgeoning array of medical offices, laboratories, pharmacies and ancillary businesses, with new spec buildings available, and plenty of land for new construction. Plans are in the works for the Oasis Wellness Village, a continuum of care that is proposed to be built adjacent to PRMC. The Oasis is a 420,000 square foot development project across more than 17.5 acres that includes multiple districts to promote health and wellness to provide the entire continuum of care, in addition to hospitality, retail and dining opportunities for Los Angeles County residents. Palmdale’s commitment to the good health of its residents was further advanced when the City joined forces with Antelope Valley Hospital to increase free access to exercise equipment through the creation of a National Fitness Court at Pelona Vista Park in Palmdale. The fitness court features 30 pieces of exercise equipment that allow for up to 28 people to use the court at the same time. The system features a series of fullbody exercises that can be completed in just seven minutes.
When you add it all up, it just makes sense to grow your business in Palmdale!
