Facey moving its Canyon Country clinic to new building

Facey Medical Group is moving its Canyon Country medical offices to a new building on Soledad Canyon Road.

The two-story, 37,000-square foot building at the corner of Mammoth Lane is scheduled to open in the summer of 2018. It will replace Facey’s current Canyon Country clinic at 17909 Soledad Canyon Rd., about 3.6 miles west of the new clinic.

Founded in the San Fernando Valley in 1923, Facey has been an affiliate of Providence Health & Services since 2012. Providence is a non-for-profit Catholic care delivery system based in Renton, Wash., that operates in seven Western states.

Facey is a multispecialty provider with 11 clinics, two urgent care centers and two eye centers. The affiliated Facey Foundation employs 183 physicians and more than 25 affiliated health professionals and has more than 170,000 patients in Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

In the SCV, it has two clinics on McBean Parkway, on the corner of Valencia Blvd. and on the campus of Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital, as well as a Copper Hill clinic on Seco Canyon Rd.

“Facey is a leading healthcare provider in the Santa Clarita Valley,” said Dr. Fredrick Russo, the group’s president, in a statement. “We’re have been in the area for more than 30 years and have grown with the community, providing a range of services from primary care to pediatrics; women’s services to urgent care. Many of our physicians and caregivers live in Santa Clarita and we are committed to improving the health of Santa Clarita residents.”

Medical services in the new Canyon Country building will include adult medicine, pediatrics and ophthalmology. Facey may also provide urgent care, but has not made a final decision. Ancillary services will include optometry and an optical shop, radiology and a lab.

“We are pleased to begin developing a new, larger medical facility so that we can expand the services we offer area residents,” Russo said.

Clinical areas in the new building are designed around a team-centered delivery model, said Dr. Roscoe Marter, an OB-GYN and Facey’s regional medical director for the Santa Clarita Valley.

Care will be delivered by teams of physicians, care coordinators (typically registered nurses) and other providers working together in spaces designed to serve as a “patient-centered medical homes,” Marter said. Each care delivery team will be responsible for about 2,500 patients.

Facey is leasing the building from Duke Realty, a commercial real estate company based in Indianapolis that owns or is developing properties in 21 markets across the country.

While Duke has developed commercial property in Southern California, this is its first medical project here. Across the country, Duke’s healthcare portfolio includes more than 6.7 million square feet of medical offices, rehab facilities, ambulatory care centers, and a cancer care center.

The architect for the building, on a 3.85 acre parcel on the south side of Soledad Canyon Rd., is Boulder Associates. The firm has offices in California, Colorado, and Texas, and has specialized in healthcare and senior living since its founding in 1983.

Locally, the firm also designed the interiors of Henry Mayo Fitness and Health in Valencia, remodeling an existing athletic club into a 36,000-square foot health and wellness center. Boulder’s Southern California office is in Irvine.

The Facey Canyon Country project’s general contractor is Snyder Langston, also based in Irvine. Snyder Langston is currently also working as general contractor for the core, shell, and tenant improvements at the new headquarters of Scorpion, a digital marketing firm. That project is rising next to Sunkist’s headquarters between the interstate and Six Flags Magic Mountain.

On an separately owned parcel next to the new Facey building, Intertex Property Management is developing retail space that could include a daycare provide,  a drive-through restaurant, and 7,000 square feet of freestanding retail space.
