LAC+USC Replacement Hospital Transition Project
Leveraging Change For Social Good
Outdated and overburdened, LAC+USC Medical Center in East Los Angeles will soon be replaced by a more modern but smaller hospital. The move into the new hospital presents the hospital administration and USC’s Keck School of Medicine with many challenges, not the least of which is maintaining the accreditation of its diverse residency training programs, each of which has specific requirements. LAC+USC trains one-third of all medical residents in Los Angeles County. These high quality residency training programs are essential to the County’s capacity to meet its mandate to serve a medically and economically fragile population. A three-year grant from UniHealth Foundation is providing resources to the Keck School of Medicine and Los Angeles County to help ensure the accrediting requirements of each residency program can be met in the new hospital.
