Southwest Healthcare Announces Expansions

It’s been years in the making, and it’s finally here.  Southwest Healthcare System’s Inland Valley Medical Center in Wildomar along with Rancho Springs Medical Center just 5 miles south in Murrieta recently opened new and expanded facilities. Inland Valley’s new 37 million dollar expanded Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Emergency Department (ED) feature a total of 35 ED beds (18 new bays, 9 original bays, 4 fast track rooms, and 4 rapid medical evaluation rooms) as well as 18 ICU beds, of which 11 are new.


Inland Valley also has an expanded entrance and waiting area that’s more than four times the original size. Walking through the new ED entrance is like a breath of fresh air – sparkling clean floors, comfortable new furnishings and wide open spaces wave goodbye to the old days of cramped and crowded waiting rooms. People go out of their way to say “Hi,” “May I help you,” and “Thank you.”


Though trivial to some, that friendly face and kind gesture can make a big difference for people who are entering the hospital because life’s ailments have gotten the best of them.     “We are extremely excited about what’s happening here at Southwest Healthcare,” says Summer Scott, Director of Business Development. “The new and expanded facilities have been a welcome site to staff, patients and the community as a whole. The atmosphere is electric.”


For several years, limited space and overwhelming demand forced Rancho Spring’s ED to operate at capacity. Those days are gone. With its new 53 million dollar expansion, Rancho Springs now has a total of 30 new ED beds, which include 4 fast track rooms, and an all-new Women’s Center with 24 new postpartum rooms, 17 new labor and delivery rooms, two triage rooms, two post anesthesia care units (PACU), and two cesarean section operating rooms.


As you drive up to the new ED and Women’s Center at Rancho Springs, the large building with ample parking and immediate access to services makes a striking impression. But it’s what’s on the inside that counts. The spacious, ultra-clean entrance and waiting areas welcome patients and family alike. Tall ceilings create a comfortable feeling that adds to the overall sense of spaciousness.


In the ED, shine and cleanliness are evident. Advanced technology and equipment and a flooring layout designed for quick maneuverability provide the perfect setting for nurses and medical staff to perform their duties at the highest possible levels.


Head over to the Women’s Center, where you’ll feel right at home. This is truly a place of refuge. Comfort and cleanliness are the essential components, but the environment exudes care and compassion. When you’re here, you want to feel as relaxed as possible, and that’s exactly what you get.


With the opening of the new ED and Women’s Center at Rancho Springs and the expanded ED and ICU at Inland Valley, Southwest Riverside County has scored high marks in healthcare. Good news from Southwest Healthcare System is good news for our community.
