Consolidated Contracting is serving as general contractor for the $14 million project. The scope of work entails construction of a three-story building and two-level parking lot, a dentist office and various exam rooms and offices. The facility will feature entrance canopies, trellises, balconies, decorative steel and tile, and retaining walls.

Located on a hillside, the project also involves the creation of caisson retaining walls, street improvements and traffic signals. The health center is slated for completion in February 2009.

Angel Trespando is serving as project manager for Consolidated Contracting, with Garet McInroe as project engineer and Steve Viscioni as construction superintendent. Rodriguez Park Architecture and Planning is the project architect, with Kawasaki Theilacker Ueno and Associates serving as landscape architect; Degenkolb Engineers as structural engineer; BDS Engineers Inc. as civil engineer; MacDonald Engineers Inc. as electrical engineer and Walsh Engineers as mechanical engineer. San Ysidro Health Center is overseeing the project, which is partially being funded through the First 5 Commission of San Diego County.

San Ysidro Health Center is the major provider of "safety net" health care services for low-income residents living in the southern region of San Diego County.

With clinics in National City, Chula Vista, Otay, and San Ysidro, SYHC serves more than 52,000 registered patients annually and provides a continuum of primary care services including medical, dental and behavioral services for children and adults, prenatal care, HIV clinical care and social services, WIC nutrition services, patient transportation, pharmacy and social services.

Founded in 1969 by a local women's group, SYHC continues to offer accessible, affordable, quality health services to the community. Once complete, SYHC's new Maternal and Child Health Center will significantly improve women and children's access to a variety of services including prenatal care, pediatrics, early child development, pediatric dentistry, WIC nutrition services and healthy cooking classes, and social and supportive services.
