Health System Campus Projects


Health System Campus Projects

Changes are happening on the Health System’s campus.

Read about current and upcoming construction projects to improve care, services, and the environment—and how we’re working to make sure we’re good neighbors in the community.


Solar Panel Installation

New solar panels are being installed over the West parking lot, helping to save money that can be spent on public services—and the environment.

Once the project is complete in October, the panels will reduce San Mateo Medical Center’s electricity spending by $300,000 every year—a 19% reduction. Over the 30-year life of the panels, that translates to $9.8 million saved.


Serenity House

Beginning in early fall, we’ll be renovating the old “receiving home” for abused children at the corner of Hacienda Street and 37th Avenue, and opening a new respite center for people with mental health issues who need a short-term break from their living situation to get back on track.


Water Tower Replacement

Starting in early 2016, we’ll be replacing the existing water tower above the West parking lot with a new one that’s built to withstand a major earthquake and complies with new laws that require us to store more water.
