Work begins on Ramona Ambulatory Care Center

Pacific Medical Buildings (PMB) has begun construction of the 7,600-square-foot Ramona Ambulatory Care Center in Ramona, which will be co-owned by PMB and Palomar Health leased to Palomar Health.

It will house an urgent care center and medical offices for Arch Health Partners, a multi-specialty medical group closely associated with Palomar Health.

“The Ramona Ambulatory Care Center represents Palomar Health Districtís commitment to provide care to the underserved residents within its boundaries,” said Jim Rohan, PMB’s senior vice president for development.

PMB is also developing a 115-foot pedestrian bridge in Poway that will link the five-story, 172,000-square-foot Pomerado Outpatient Pavilion and a connected 1,170-space parking structure to Pomerado Hospital.

Palomar Health will lease the pedestrian bridge from PMB on a long-term basis.

The outpatient pavilion, which is owned, leased and managed by PMB and its institutional partner, opened in 2007.

“The pedestrian bridge will provide patients and visitors convenient access to the hospital, the Outpatient Pavilion and the parking structure,” Rohan said.
