Health Care Projects Boost State’s Construction Industry
Despite the economic downturn, health care construction projects in California are on the rise. Since 2003, health care construction projects in the state have more than doubled to $21.4 billion. The Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development's Facilities Development Division reports that there are 5,363 health care construction projects -- either seismic upgrades or building replacements -- in the plan review stage, in-between planning and construction, under construction or just recently completed.
