Navy’s Biggest Recovery Project is On Land

Posted in Agency News, Recovery Projects/Awards by Recovery.gov on December 13, 2011

The Department of the Navy’s largest Recovery funded project is a new hospital under construction at Camp Pendleton on the California coast.  When completed in January 2014, the hospital will support approximately 151,000 active duty and retired military personnel and their families.

The 500,000 square-foot facility will include:

  • Inpatient services
  • Emergency care
  • Primary care
  • Specialty care

The $394 million contract was awarded to the Costa Mesa firm Clark/McCarthy, which in turn has engaged the services of 49 sub-recipients. The new hospital replaces one constructed in 1969.

As of the end of September, 2011 work on the foundation, including installation of below-ground mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, was complete. Workers are now erecting the structural steel for the seven-story building.

    I see that this was primarily plan simply to meet every navy’s need for their health which is indeed a huge issue and demand not just during the time of war but on almost everyday. Hopefully I can see a home care for our retired navy’s who can’t no longer be able to take care of themselves.
