foundation has been poured, rebar is in place and walls have begun to appear.  The new structure is on schedule to be completed in spring 2011 and will feature a life-saving helipad in addition to the 750 parking spaces that are greatly needed to serve visitors, patients, volunteers and hospital staff.
The parking structure and helipad are two of the major components of the hospital's expansion efforts as Henry Mayo continues to grow in size and sophistication to better serve the Santa Clarita Valley and surrounding communities.

Amy Whelan, 17, was the first patient to take the short trip from the old ICU to the new unit which features technologically-advanced equipment, a calming atmosphere and greater privacy -- all aimed at helping patients severely impacted by trauma, disease or illness.
Henry Mayo's new ICU is double the size of the old unit, accommodating 18 patients, and is a key part of the hospital's expansion efforts to increase the capacity and quality of services in the Santa Clarita Valley to better meet the needs of our community. 
The new ICU is one of the major steps the hospital has recently undertaken to transform itself into a world class, modern medical center. Now that the former ICU is vacant, the stage is set to move forward with the development of a new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) which will give expectant mothers in Santa Clarita a full range of maternity services and provide the highest level of care to infants in need of specialized healthcare.
