Catholic Healthcare West, which locally operates Mercy hospitals, and UC Davis Health System plan to break ground soon on a joint outpatient medical facility in Rocklin. The new Placer Center for Health will bring more primary and specialty care, including oncology services, to South Placer County, one of the fastest-growing areas in California.
UC Davis and Mercy will share the lease on the planned 66,000-square-foot facility, operating their respective primary and specialty-care services but sharing access to an outpatient pharmacy, clinical laboratory and array of diagnostic imaging services, including CT, MRI, ultrasound, general X-ray and mammography equipment.
UC Davis oncology specialists will see patients at the new center, which will include an on-site infusion center with 11 treatment stations.
The facility will be located within Rocklin's 115-acre Orchard Creek Business Park development, adjacent to approximately 15 acres also controlled by the University of California. UC Davis envisions that parcel as the future home for a regional ambulatory cancer treatment center and outpatient clinic.
