Physician group submits bid to reinstate healthcare operations at shuttered 157-year-old California hospital site

A California physician group reportedly submitted a bid to reinstate select healthcare operations at the site of the former Los Angeles-based Pacific Alliance Medical Center, which shuttered last November citing costs related to retrofitting its facilities to meet the state's seismic standards, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Here are four things to know about the proposal.

1. The physicians group, Allied Pacific, seeks to introduce a 24-hour urgent care facility on the former hospital's property, with specialty clinics for cardiology, ophthalmology, diabetes, high blood pressure and congestive heart failure. The bid also proposes the creation of a health center for senior citizen residents in the area.

2. Allied Pacific is partnering with AHMC Healthcare, a six-hospital system in Alhambra, Calif., on the urgent care facility.

3. An Allied Pacific official told the Los Angeles Times the proposal would not require much renovation of the former hospital and may reduce the costs of earthquake retrofitting the facilities.

4. The property's owner placed the former 157-year-old hospital up for sale in January. The corresponding auction for the property ended last week. It is unclear how many organizations bid for the site or when officials will reveal the winning bid, according to the report.
