Seneca Healthcare Completes Initial CEQA Review, Seeks Public Comments


Seneca Healthcare’s proposed 12-acre acute care hospital and skilled nursing facility, which includes a 6-acre helipad, has completed its initial CEQA review. The review by lead agency Sequoia Ecological Consulting found that the project would not significantly impact the environment. The new facility will house 10 acute care beds, three private ER and trauma procedure rooms, 26 skilled nursing beds, new imaging rooms, and additional OR recovery rooms. The project has been revised to address environmental concerns and considerations for stakeholders, and the CEO has signed off on the initial study. The new hospital is expected to be fully operational by 2025. The public is invited to review the notice of intent to adopt a mitigated negative declaration and submit comments.
