SAN DIEGO, October 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — PMB, a leading healthcare real estate developer across the continuum of care, and Providence St. Joseph’s Hospital, a cornerstone of healthcare in Orange and Los Angeles counties for over 90 years, celebrated another milestone on October 20 in the construction of a new 137,000 square foot medical office building with the ceremonial “Topping-Off” of the steel structure. Construction workers, employees, doctors, community members, elected officials and donors gathered to sign the 17-foot-long, 570-pound steel beam before it was hoisted to the top of the center for Women and Families Helen Caloggero of Providence St. Joseph Hospital.
