Who We Are
Beach Cities Health District is one of the leading preventive health agencies in the nation, and has served the communities of Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach since 1955. We offer a range of evidence-based health and wellness programs, with innovative services and facilities to promote health and well-being across the lifespan.
State of the Current Campus
Our 11-acre campus is home to our 63-year old former hospital building located at 514 North Prospect Avenue in Redondo Beach—extending from Diamond Street to Beryl Street and Prospect Avenue to Flagler Lane. The campus also includes two medical office buildings (510 and 520 North Prospect Avenue).
The next 1-5 years is our “window of opportunity” to address escalating maintenance costs as well as seismic and structural issues common with buildings of its age. BCHD’s Board and the project’s Community Working Group directed staff to take a broader look at the campus and prioritize safety after seismic experts provided analysis, preliminary costs and results that concluded that while no legal obligation exists to address the building’s structural integrity, there were issues that should be addressed.
A robust public outreach process has been ongoing since 2017, with neighbors, residents, and community leaders providing their perspectives about the project. These valued insights – as well as information gathered from expert structural and financial consultants – form the foundation for moving forward.
Healthy Living Campus Vision
In pursuit of meeting the evolving health needs of residents, creating a community campus designed for all Beach Cities residents and dedicating more than a year to a community-driven process emerged a master plan to create an innovative Healthy Living Campus.
This once-in-a-generation project is our community’s unique opportunity to chart the future of preventive health in the Beach Cities by purposefully building an intergenerational, vibrant campus where people can engage in healthy behaviors, form meaningful connections and be well … for many generations to come.
