Marin Healthcare District to submit plans for Marin General Hospital seismic upgrade

GREENBRAE, CA — After more than a year of preliminary study and design, the Marin Healthcare District is preparing to submit its plans to Marin County for the seismic upgrade requirements at Marin General Hospital. This is the first step in the process to receive the necessary entitlements to begin construction.

Plans must be submitted to the County in order to get the entitlements necessary before starting construction on the site. The current site plan will result in a hospital that meets the state's seismic standard and will provide the community with expanded and upgraded Trauma and emergency services, new operating rooms for open heart and other surgeries, new labor and delivery rooms, private patient rooms as well as many other support departments. A thorough Environmental Impact Report is on of the next steps that will need to be completed before the County can approve the project and master plan amendment.

"We are looking forward to meeting with the County officials, showing them our plans, and getting valuable feedback from both County staff and supervisors" commented Lee Domanico, the Marin Healthcare District's CEO. "We think the community will be pleased with the plans and we look forward to presenting it to Marin General Hospital employees and medical staff as well as the public in the coming months to gather additional input."
