PALMDALE – A first of its kind wellness village real estate development called The Oasis is coming to Palmdale, Thomas Partners Properties (TPP) announced Wednesday.
With groundbreaking expected in June of 2016, The Oasis Wellness Village will offer a continuum of care at 864 W. Palmdale Boulevard – adjacent to Palmdale Regional Medical Center.
The Oasis is a 420,000-square-foot development across more than 17.5 acres. The more than $200 million project will create thousands of new good paying jobs for the area and provide a variety of public amenities and public infrastructure improvements, including a public pavilion, parking and circulation amenities, park, pedestrian areas, signage, decor and landscaping.
“The Oasis Wellness Village is a true health care success story,” stated Palmdale Mayor Jim Ledford. “We have a health care crisis in the Antelope Valley, and The Oasis is turning that crisis into an opportunity to promote better health and better health care for everyone.”
Thomas Partners Properties President John Thomas stated, “This is the future of health care in America. The Oasis Wellness Village brings together the world’s finest physicians with everything from imaging and physical therapy to yoga and farmers markets … a true integration of health and wellness.”
“We have been pleased to have had extensive conversations with our neighbor, Palmdale Regional Hospital, and are hopeful they will be an active participant in The Oasis. Based on our meetings it is clear our vision at TPP is consistent with the hospital’s long term master plan. We look forward to working together with Palmdale Regional Hospital and the City to help make The Oasis become a reality,” Thomas continued.
Michael Kim, healthcare principal at HKS architects and lead designer of The Oasis said, “The Oasis is a first of its kind wellness village and should serve as a model for health care distribution nationally.”
The Oasis will be introducing new technologies, from streamlining check in with RFID “Smart Check In” to providing a spa-like environment for visitors to relax, be well and enjoy their experience.
