C.W. Driver has broken ground on Palomar Health's new $4.5 million satellite clinic, the Ramona Ambulatory Care Center in Ramona.
Designed by San Diego-based Mascari Warner Architects, the 7,600-square-foot, single-story outpatient medical clinic built on approximately an acre of land will expand the healthcare services for the Ramona community.
Located at 13th and Main streets, the new clinic, which will be co-owned by Palomar Health and developer Pacific Medical Buildings, will welcome Arch Health Partners, an affiliated physician organization of Palomar Health, as its exclusive tenant when construction is complete in January 2013.
The new facility will feature a cement plaster exterior along with high ceilings that include the use of exposed beams in the building's lobby.
With a total of three acres available near the clinic's site, Palomar Health officials say they have the room for future expansion.
C.W. Driver, a builder serving the Western United States since 1919, specializes in general contracting and construction management services.
The company has offices in Los Angeles, Irvine, Ontario, Anaheim, San Diego and San Mateo.
The Ramona Ambulatory Care Center joins a number of C.W. Driver-built medical office buildings including the 75,000-square-foot east campus office building on the University of California, San Diego campus, which opened in the fall of 2011 and tenant improvement work for an existing 15,500-square-foot medical office building for Kaiser Permanente in Indio.

The firm currently owns and manages 48 facilities totaling approximately 3.25 million square feet and currently has five projects under development that total 650,000 square feet.
