St. Jude Medical Center

Community News – St. Jude Northwest Tower Completion

By Stephanie Goedl

November 7, 2014

I’m excited for my first post on the CENTURY 21 Discovery Blog to be about something that is near and dear to my heart. Our office is located in Fullerton which is in the hub of North Orange County, California. Across the street from our office is St. Jude Medical Center. This medical facility is a cornerstone of the community and provides high quality medical care as well as jobs to the area.

St. Jude is near and dear to my heart because it’s where I was born, I volunteered there in high school, I am currently a member of the St. Jude Hospital Guild and also serve on the Patient Advisory Council. As REALTORS® we are educated in the communities we serve by staying up to date on the neighborhood schools, parks, shopping and of course the local medical facilities.

A little over a year ago I had the opportunity to interview Lee Penrose, CEO of St. Jude Medical Center, as part of our CENTURY 21 Discovery Community Conversations video series. That video was about the construction that was going on of the Northwest Tower at the center.

Tomorrow, November 8th, the four-story tower will be open to the public for tours from 11-2. The new building will house state of the art surgical suites along with a new pharmacy, radiology, a “healing garden” and my favorite, a new cafeteria!

It’s been great to have a front row seat from our office watching the Northwest Tower being built. This facility will be an amazing addition to our community. I hope you can take advantage of this opportunity to take behind-the-scenes tour and interactive demonstrations before its open for business. Having this first class facility in our own backyard is benefit to all who live and work in North Orange County.
