$572M UCLA Hospital Campus Nears Completion, Expected to Open 2012

UCLA Health System has conducted a dedication ceremony marking near-completion of a new $572 million hospital campus in Santa Monica, according to a health system release.

The new Santa Monica campus features the UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica; a branch of the Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA; the Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital; and the UCLA Rape Treatment Center.  

Other notable components of the new campus include 266 inpatient beds, a 22-bed adult and pediatric intensive care unit, Santa Monica's only inpatient pediatrics unit, and integrated interventional and surgical services, including radiology and cardiac-catheterization labs, 16 operating rooms and pre- and post-anesthesia care units.

The rebuilding project was launched in response to damage caused by the 1994 Northridge earthquake. The new hospital was built to meet the latest seismic safety standards. Patients are expected to be moved to the new hospital campus in early 2012.
