Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center has started construction on a $244M hospital project in California, US.

The new 18,300sq m building will feature 138 private patient rooms, including 10 intensive care suites, five high-tech surgical suites, and one unique and versatile hybrid operating room.

The development will also include a redesigned main entrance and lobby, a rooftop café and additional space for support services.

Hensel Phelps is serving as the general contractor with SmithGroupJJR and AVRP Studios providing architectural services.

Sharp Chula Vista CEO Pablo Velez said: "We're committed to expanding Sharp Chula Vista as this binational community continues to grow.

"An important part of that commitment includes building quickly and efficiently and be good stewards of the funds entrusted to us."

The new hospital is expected to open in 2019.
