Yorba Linda, CA

Promoting physician alignment through an operationally lean, sustainable and cost-effective real estate investment vehicle

The St. Jude Heritage Medical Plaza launched with a focus on the enhancing the patient experience and creating physician alignment. Utilizing lean design methodologies, Petra focused on an operationally efficient and patient-oriented

“off-stage/on-stage” environment.

The building program included 128 private high-tech exam rooms, an eight room urgent care, pharmacy, lab, and advanced

outpatient CT, MRI, and fully-integrated ultrasound imaging services to promote a seamless customer experience.


Sustainability was also an achievement of the St. Jude Heritage Medical Plaza, which became one of the first LEED Certified medical office buildings in Orange County. The project was great success amongst physicians and the patient community.
