In 1925, the Chinese Hospital opened its doors on Jackson Street, offering services designed around the language and culture of their patients, who spoke little or no English. Anecdotally, martial arts hero Bruce Lee was born here in 1940. In 1979 the hospital added a 24-bed building. In 2016 a new 8-story, $200M replacement hospital building with 54 beds was added to the site. The 1979 building was converted to medical administration and outpatient center.


Exante360 was invited late to the project at a time when construction was well underway. The old hospital had been demolished and concrete was being poured for the lower levels of the replacement hospital. For the next few years our multi-disciplinary design team provided ICT design and consulting services that included infrastructure cabling and pathways, security, wireless, audio visual, CATV, nurse call, IT network design and DAS. We assisted with OSHPD submittals, make ready work, with converting the 1979 building, with establishing BIM models and with the remodel of a nearby clinic on Gellert Boulevard.
