Rebuilding VMC…time to get started!

If you pay taxes in Santa Clara County, then Valley Medical Center quite literally belongs to you.

That’s one of three reasons why we’re going to keep you informed every step of the way as we rebuild Silicon Valley’s largest hospital. It’s all starting pretty much NOW…we’re getting set to knock down the old outpatient building (as soon as everyone is moved out, of course) and make room for the new patient tower. Yes, we’re ready to go this winter, now that Measure A passed with more votes than any other issue on the ballot (including Barack Obama. I know…totally amazing.)

The second reason we’ll keep you up to speed is that it’s required. The Citizen Oversight Committee, mandated as part of Measure A, is coming together to ensure the funds are used wisely and per the will of the voters. Watch this space, as I’ll use it as just one way to share information about this massive and crucial project…I’ll get more specific as decisions are made and timelines set.

The third reason? It’s going to be just SO COOL. The new VMC will be beautiful, state of the art, world-class and way more efficient than the buildings it will replace. I know I speak for the executive team of the Santa Clara Valley Health & Hospital System when I say we cannot wait to get going!

The rendering above gives you an idea of what’s coming, and again, we’re not wasting any time. The result will be an absolutely breathtaking VMC – better for patients, and for our commuity.

And why shouldn’t it be? It’s yours.
