BACKGROUND: Since 2017, Beach Cities Health District has been working with the community to reimagine our aging campus to better reflect our mission and meet the current health needs of Hermosa, Manhattan and Redondo Beach residents.
When the 15-year master plan is completed, the intergenerational Healthy Living Campus – designed for all ages – will include a Community Wellness Pavilion with health and wellness services, meetings/conferences, a demonstration kitchen, rooftop space for exercise classes, approximately 420 Residential Care For the Elderly units, an upgraded child development center and Center for Health & Fitness, more than four acres of active green space and walking and bike paths.
“For the past two years, we’ve been working closely with residents to re-imagine our 11-acre campus to chart the future of preventive health in the Beach Cities,” says Beach Cities Health District CEO Tom Bakaly. “This community open house allows us to update residents about how the Healthy Living Campus plans have developed and to continue to collect public input. The vision for this campus is a vibrant, research-driven center where people can learn and engage in healthy behaviors, form meaningful connections and be well…for many generations to come.”
