Built as an auto service plaza in 1936 and converted to a grocery store in 1949, the building had sat vacant since 2000. ARES LLC purchased the structure in December 2011 and was able to work with the city and other public entities to comply with historic guidelines in order to save the unique property from certain demolition and transform it into a vibrant healthcare center. In fact, it is the best-performing of all of CHSI’s five clinics. Located in the City of Riverside enterprise redevelopment zone, the surrounding area is poised for significant growth over the coming decades.
The finished space consists of 15 medical exam rooms, 4 dental exam rooms, and 2 procedure rooms for the medical and dental specialties, as well as private office and conference space. The conference space is used not only for staff meetings, but also for community outreach and education purposes. The clinical space, including the diagnostics and lab areas, has been designed to promote wireless connectivity to paperless records and quick access to test results, allowing for more efficient use of the doctors’ time.
