Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital

Patient Tower


Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital is an award-winning regional medical/surgical facility and Level II Trauma Center located in the rapidly growing Santa Clarita Valley, a 450-square-mile area about 30 miles north of downtown Los Angeles. Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital is named for the American businessman whose extensive landholdings purchased in the 1870s became the communities of Santa Clarita, Newhall, Saugus and Valencia.

Originally established in 1975 to serve a mostly rural agricultural area with fewer than 10,000 residents, the hospital now serves a population of more than 300,000. The new OSHPD-1 tower includes 119 beds, three Medical/Surgical units, a 29-bed Women’s Services Unit, kitchen and large cafeteria, Materials Management and Loading Dock, future expansion shell space, and a rooftop helipad. An innovative phased loading dock enabled construction of the new tower with no interruption to current operations of the existing hospital.

As a part of the design-build team, Vantage managed the visioning of all healthcare and low voltage technology systems. During client workshops, Vantage participated in discussions between the design team, client executives, and hospital departments, including doctors, nurses, administration, facilities, and IT, to recognize and prioritize technology and healthcare systems. Vantage provided a comprehensive technology plan for the new tower which include state-of-the-art communication infrastructure to support Real Time Location Systems (RTLS), next-generation Patient Entertainment and Information systems, pervasive telehealth systems and a medical-grade wireless network. In addition, Vantage designed the technology infrastructure and systems to support and integrate seamlessly with the existing campus technologies and low voltage systems, without disrupting current hospital operations.

Demonstrating the power of how collaboration and innovation can transform the design and build process, the Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital is the recipient of the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) National Award – Merit for healthcare facilities.
