The Class A medical office campus is 78 percent leased. LLU, a private health sciences university, built the two buildings in 2008 over 15 acres at 81 Highland Springs Avenue off the 10 Freeway in Beaumont, Calif. The property includes a family medical practice, an imaging center and a pharmacy, as well as other departments such as cardiology, general surgery, neurosurgery and oncology.
