Gateway Center at Gibson Health Hub

Learn about the City's Gateway Center at Gibson Health Hub.

The City acquired the 572,000 square foot Gibson Medical Center in April 2021 and renamed it the Gibson Health Hub. The campus hosts existing tenants providing medical, behavioral health, and vocational services. The City's Gateway project will add additional health resources for the community as well as centrally located overnight beds and supportive services to connect people with the help they need on their pathway to housing.
