MENIFEE – The Menifee Global Medical Center was honored during the Oct. 2 city council meeting by Menifee’s Economic Development Department as the Business Spotlight for October. The community hospital, part of the KPC Health hospital system, has invested more than $2.5 million into its Menifee location in recent years.
“Menifee Global Medical Center is truly your hospital in the community,” Peter Baronoff, CEO of KPC Healthy System CEO, said.
He also announced that KPC Health is looking to add a medical school in Southern California in the future and has identified Menifee as one of three finalists for a potential location for the school.
“Medical schools bring a variety of important needs to a community,” Baranoff said. “The economic benefit is amazingly substantial.”
He also highlighted the community health benefits of potentially bringing highly trained medical professionals to the city.
“Menifee Global Medical Center/KPC Health is truly a valued city partner,” Gina Gonzalez, director of economic development, said. “Through continued job creation, economic investment in Menifee and the consistent delivery of quality health care, the hospital has remained consistent in its dedication to helping Menifee and its residents thrive.”
The Menifee’s Business Spotlight program is a free business recognition program designed to create awareness about the variety of local businesses and their contributions to the Menifee community and region. Featured businesses are recognized at a city council meeting and highlighted on www.MenifeeBusiness.com. Additionally, businesses are awarded a 30-second professional video production created by the Department of Economic Development that will be showcased on the city’s website, social media platforms and given to the business with rights to use as needed to promote their business.
