SANTA CLARA, Calif.
— The hospital that served as the home of former NFL player and Heisman Trophy winner, Kurt Warner, will officially open its doors on Jan, 1, the NFL announced Wednesday.
The new facility will be built on the site of the former Grady Medical Center, which opened in 1967.
The new facility is located at 1633 N. La Brea Ave.
and will be the first new facility for the NFL since the NFL’s first indoor practice facility opened in 1995.
The Grady facility is the brainchild of former San Diego Chargers executive director of business operations, David Grady.
The facility was the home to the NFL and NFLPA for Warner and the Chargers until his death in 2018.
The Chargers also played in Grady from 1977 to 1986.
The NFL is also working on a stadium at the stadium site, but a decision on the stadium has not been made.
The facility will house the teams home games.
“We are incredibly grateful for the tremendous support and cooperation from the NFL, the Chargers and the fans of the San Diego franchise,” Chargers President and CEO Dean Spanos said in a statement.
“The NFL and Chargers organization have been committed to making the Grady Center the premier facility in the country for the franchise, the city of San Diego and all of us who have supported this team for more than two decades.
The NFL, Chargers and fans of San Francisco are our brothers and sisters, and we will continue to work together to build the best possible facility.”
