Contractor Selected for Phase 2 of Stockton Health Care Facility

STOCKTON – The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) and California Prison Health Care Services (CPHCS) today announced the selection of the joint venture of Clark Construction Group, LLC and McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. in association with HDR architects to build the second phase of the California Health Care Facility (CHCF) Stockton.

Clark/McCarthy will be responsible for construction of housing for 1,722 patient-inmates, a diagnostics and treatment center, program spaces, and administrative support buildings. The contract is valued at approximately $512 million.

Mike Meredith, CDCR project director, said there was significant competition for the contract. “We had several competent firms compete for this contract. We are pleased to welcome the Clark/McCarthy team to the project.”

The facility is an intermediate-level medical and mental health care facility for patient-inmates within the California state prison system. The total project is approximately 1.2 million square-feet. The first phase of construction, including on- and off-site utilities, road work, grading, secure perimeter fencing, and a central utilities plant was previously awarded to a joint venture of Granite and Hensel Phelps construction companies.

CHCF Stockton will result in a significant positive impact for the Stockton/San Joaquin community, creating more than $1 billion in economic activity associated with construction, and adding approximately 2,400 permanent jobs once the facility is complete.

Construction is anticipated to last approximately two years.
