About the Project
Beach Cities Health District, one of the leading preventive health agencies in the nation, is working with the community to reimagine our aging, former hospital site to better reflect our mission and meet the current health needs of Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach residents. In pursuit of this vision, since May 2017 we've collected feedback from the community, consulted with experts and publicly vetted numerous designs and concepts for the 11-acre site with our board of directors. A master plan to create a contemporary Healthy Living Campus anchored in Health, Livability and Community has emerged from this iterative community-driven process.
This once-in-a-generation project is our community’s unique opportunity to chart the future of health in the Beach Cities by purposefully building an intergenerational, vibrant campus where people can engage in healthy behaviors, form meaningful connections and be well … for many generations to come.
