French Hospital Medical Center is preparing for modifications to its Johnson Avenue entrance beginning September 16. The construction will make much needed modifications to traffic flow to and from the hospital parking lots, the site of the future parking structure and the new patient tower. The project will also improve pedestrian walkways. 

The project, another step towards construction of Your New French Hospital, will have minimal impact to patients, families and staff members. Lower parking lots will remain available during construction. Traffic control will be in place for the duration of construction.  

This is the second major project at French Hospital this year, as the facility broke ground on the Swanson Family Chapel in April. The Johnson Avenue project is paving the way for the hospital of the future, Your New French Hospital, a monumental transformation which will revolutionize the physical campus and advance health care in San Luis Obispo County.  

This incredible undertaking will far exceed the needs and expectations of our growing community through advanced technologies, highly skilled personnel and a new state-of-the art facility.
