Consolidated Contracting Services, Inc., a leading Southern California commercial builder, has construction under way for a new 24,000-square-foot QueensCare Health Centers (QHC) facility in East Los Angeles, located at 4816 E. 3rd Street, Los Angeles, Calif. 90022.
The two-story, structural-steel building will encompass 38 medical exam rooms, nine dental operatories for adult and pediatric dentistry, three counseling rooms and two meeting rooms. It will also contain a 1,000-square-foot conference room that will serve as a venue for hosting health events and community meetings. Construction is slated for completion in August 2014, and the health center will be open to serve patients in early 2015.
Situated on a one-acre lot accessed along East 3rd Street, the new health center will be serviced by the Metro Gold Line, which stops just north of the site. The new facility will record more than 55,000 patient visits a year — double the organization’s current capacity in East Los Angeles.
Consolidated Contracting demolished the existing church structure last month and is now working on site grading and installation of underground utilities. An official groundbreaking celebration was held on September 24th.
This is the first major capital development project in the nearly century-long history of QueensCare Health Centers’ operations,” stated Barbara B. Hines, President & CEO of QueensCare Health Centers. “We are pleased to have Consolidated Contracting building the new center due to its experience in health center development and its team-oriented approach.”
Joe Troya, principal of Consolidated Contracting Services, is serving as project executive, with Stephen Viscioni as project superintendent, Rod Tower as project manager and James Dixon as project engineer.

Carter Romanek Landscape Architects, Los Angeles, is the landscape architect.

QueensCare Health Centers’ mission is to provide quality primary healthcare that is accessible to any patient in need in the communities it serves, regardless of ability to pay. A non-profit community health center, QHC was founded in 1925 to care for abandoned and neglected children.
