San Antonio Hospital Renamed

(March 24) San Antonio Community Hospital has been renamed San Antonio Regional Hospital.
San Antonio Hospital has been in existence since 1907, when it was originally located at the corner of San Antonio and Arrow Highway. In 1924 it moved to its present location on San Antonio Road just east of Campus Avenue and near what is today Memorial Park.
Twenty-five years ago the hospital began to reach beyond Upland, opening the Rancho San Antonio Medical Plaza in Rancho Cucamonga and shortly thereafter the . Sierra San Antonio Medical Plaza in Fontana in the last three decades. Next month, San Antonio will add a third satellite facility with the opening of the Eastvale San Antonio Medical Plaza.
According to Harris Koening, the facility’s president and chief executive officer, the rechristening of its flagship Upland facility to San Antonio Regional Hospital is intended to announce to the world the expansion of its service area. Work at the Upland site has been ongoing for some time and later this year, the $160 million expansion will be complete. It is to include a new patient tower with 92 private beds, including 12 for critical care, and an enlargement of its emergency department by 8,000 square feet, entailing another 52 beds.
