San Carlos Center, of the Sutter Health network, is set to open on November 15th, 2014. This new facility will serve as a short term acute care hospital. It will be a state-of-the-art, full service medical center that integrates an outpatient medical center and a hospital. Offering a full range of medical services, this center will include outpatient surgery, an on-site laboratory, diagnostic imaging, an urgent care center open 365 days a year, and 75 primary and specialty physicians (with a future capacity to grow to 120).
The project began in 2007 when the Palo Alto Medical Foundation received all necessary city approvals to move forward with construction.
