Community Regional Medical Center officials today announced a multi-project expansion plan that could cost more than $1 billion over the next decade.

The first phase of the expansion will be a five-story, 180,000-square-foot pediatric office building on the Downtown Fresno campus that will feature space for pediatric sub-specialists and outpatient services. It will also feature some retail space as well as a pharmacy.

Community Regional Medical Center CEO Craig Wagoner said in his announcement that the office building should be complete by the end of summer 2017.

“It will be one-stop shopping for all of our pediatric needs in the community,” Wagoner said.

The pediatric office builds off of a partnership struck with UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals to deepen Community Medical Centers’ pediatric residency program.

Wagoner said since the agreement was made last year, Community has recruited more than 26 pediatric sub-specialists to the Valley.

Following the pediatric office, Wagoner said the Community board of trustees has also approved planning for future bed towers, which Wagoner said could cost upwards of $1 billion to build.

The announcement comes on the heels from a report last week that Clovis Community Medical Center has begun design work on a new $65 million cancer center.
