ORANGE COUNTY, CA – Today, Supervisor Foley released a statement following yesterday’s Board of Supervisors meeting where the Board unanimously approved a $78.2 million project to build new headquarters for the Orange County Health Care Agency (HCA) in Irvine. The campus expands HCA’s public health lab as well as houses administrative offices, an emergency operations center, and other facilities. Planned to be located next to the future BeWell wellness center, the new Health Care Agency campus and labs will help us improve the quality of health and wellness care for Orange County residents.
“If we learned anything from the last few years, it’s the importance of investing in public health and science,” said Supervisor Katrina Foley. “Once built, the new HCA facilities will transform the way our County maintains public health, navigates health emergencies, and provide key services to community members. I am happy to support this major investment that is instrumental in keeping Orange County moving forward.”
