Mills-Peninsula Medical Center Celebrates One-Year Anniversary
This time last year, on May 15, 2011, the doors to the new Mills-Peninsula Medical Center opened.
In its first year of operations – caring for people 24 hours a day, every day – an award-winning team of doctors, nurses and staff has tallied a number of accomplishments:
- 1,956 babies born
- 44,738 emergencies answered
- 18,787 rehabilitation treatments given
- 1,358,149 lab tests performed
- 10,532 surgeries
- 314,738 outpatient services
Mills-Peninsula Medical Center, part of the Sutter Health network of care, includes the 450,000-square-foot, 241-bed hospital and adjoining outpatient physician office center.
While the staff celebrates its first complete year in the new medical complex, demolition of the old Peninsula Medical Center is nearly complete, a process that has been under way since October 2011. About 80 percent of the old building will be salvaged and recycled, including all metals and concrete. After the demolition is complete – the target is June – the land will be converted to parking for approximately 300 vehicles.
