Now complete and open to the public, the Loma Linda University Medical Center, located in California, features one-of-a-kind structural design and consists of more than 25,000 tons of steel.
Built to meet updated state seismic codes for acute care facilities, the campus is home to LLUH’s new 16-story medical center and 9-story Children’s Hospital tower. The new hospital houses 320 beds for adult patients, while the new pediatric tower gives Children’s Hospital a total of 373 licensed beds and offers 4,700 Loma Linda University students and 700 residents the opportunity to progress in their education.
The acute care facility, built upon 126 base isolators to reduce the impact of seismic activity, is the second-tallest hospital in California.
The project team included general contractor McCarthy Building Companies and architect NBBJ.
