Providing the Care You Need in the Community

LAC+USC works to reach patients where they are through services such as the Breathmobile a medically equipped van that visits Los Angeles County Schools to serve children who have asthma. The Breathmobile also provides testing for allergies, flu shots and education for families about how to improve their health.

Our Medical Team

LAC+USC medical staff includes more than 700 full-time physicians from the USC Keck School of Medicine, nearly 900 medical interns and residents, and about 2,600 nurses of all levels including 900 registered nurses.

Our Hospital Campus

A new 600-bed state-of-the-art hospital opened in 2008 to replace the historic hospital structure that was damaged in the 1994 Northridge Earthquake. The new hospital meets stringent earthquake and fire codes and is built to withstand a high magnitude quake. The old hospital building is being refashioned into a Wellness Center a dynamic new space for nonprofit agencies to link visitors to community health services and resources. The adjoining outdoor space will include walk paths, fitness trails, art exhibitions, and concert space.  The LAC+USC health complex is adjacent to the University of Southern California Health Sciences Campus, which includes the USC Keck School of Medicine, USC School of Pharmacy, Keck Hospital and the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and Hospital.
