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