About the Project

In spring 2015, the City Council unanimously approved the Medical Office Building and City Hall Project – a unique public-private partnership that will result in a direct investment of $53.2 million into the Citrus Heights economy and generate more than 170 jobs. The new medical office building is part of the City’s economic development efforts to diversify the local economy. In addition, the clinic will offer much-needed services to our community.

The 68,727 square-foot medical office building will be operated by Mercy Medical Group, a service of Dignity Health Medical Foundation. The multi-specialty clinic will house 50 physicians and provide a wide-range of primary medical services. Dignity Health representatives estimate the new medical office building will open spring 2019.

As part of the project, Capital Partners Development Company constructed a new, energy-efficient 35,000 square-foot City Hall and adjacent 4,000 square-foot facility at 6360 Fountain Square Drive. The new City Hall opened August 2016.
