This is just such a massive improvement to open soon, and going from night to day it deserved some pictures and recognition. Half a million out patients per year are seen here. The opening has been delayed a couple times but it appears it is now on around the first of next month. The new facility is going to be more modern and up to date than many of the facilities in the Los Angeles area.
This is going to have to be a real culture shock for many to go from an earthquake damaged and big depression era built facility, to one that has all the new modern technologies and structure. I moved to California in the early 80s and worked not too far from the facility on Mission Road and only had the opportunity of seeing the facility once way back when taking a fellow employee to the emergency room who was having a heart attack, and it was busy then too. Watch the entire video here.
“A partner of the Keck School of Medicine of USC since 1885, LAC+USC Medical Center is among the largest teaching hospitals in the country. Staffed by more than 450 full-time faculty of the Keck School and approximately 850 medical residents in training, LAC+USC services 50,000 inpatients and 750,000 outpatients annually. Among its specialized facilities and services is a state-of-the-art burn center, Level III neonatal intensive care unit, Level I trauma service, an NIH-funded clinical research center and a HIV/AIDS outpatient center.”
Depression Era Construction Addition
As it stands today..remember the picture on General Hospital..and will remain a historical landmark.
The new facility…
3 buildings with one walk way throughout all to connect.
The new lobby.
New exam rooms equipped with computers.
Operating Rooms with the latest up to date equipment.
The Robots are here to carry supplies and other items. This looks pretty cool.
They can handle up to 1000#
Robots have their own elevators it appears.
This is somewhat old in theory, but done with today’s technology, I remember the tubes in stores years ago.
Nice and with the tube system, this should really speed things up.
The New Facility rooms with private rooms.
Multiples of each Diagnostic tool.
This was the biggest building project conducted by the County of Los Angeles and they appear now to have a director.
