SMC Wins Brand New Hospital Program

Swinerton Management & Consulting (SMC) has been selected to provide program and construction management services for California Northstate University’s (CNU) Hospital Program in Sacramento, CA. SMC will manage many phases of the program including general contractor procurement, critical subcontractor design-assist procurement, schedule and cost management, and construction management. Phase 1A of the program is a medical campus center consisting of a 733,000 square-foot hospital with a helistop, a central utility plant, and parking. 

New Innovation District Neighborhood

Over the next 10 years, the CNU medical campus will include a university campus, medical offices, a childcare center, an active senior care facility, and a selection of retail services. The estimated size of the entire medical campus is 3,680,000 square feet. 

CNU’s hospital program will be on the site currently occupied by Sleep Train Arena. Once the arena is demolished, a new Innovation District neighborhood will be created. CNU will occupy approximately 41 acres of the 183 acres formerly used by the Sacramento Kings. The arena was a practice facility for the Sacramento Kings basketball team and intermittently hosted concerts and large events, but it hasn’t been utilized since 2017. Dr. Alvin Cheung’s, CNU CEO and President, vision is to create a multi-generational and sustainable institution that will train and develop healthcare professionals to meet the growing needs of the Sacramento and Northern California region. We are very proud to be a part of the CNU team and its vision.
