DTLA – South Park’s California Hospital Medical Center broke ground last week on a 150,000-square-foot, four-story tower. The building will house neonatal intensive care, labor and postpartum departments on the upper levels, while the ground floor will hold an expanded trauma center.
The tower, which is part of an overall $215 million expansion of the hospital at 1401 S. Grand Ave., broke ground on Thursday, Jan. 24. The project seeks to expand and modernize the hospital as Downtown grows and changes. The new trauma center will allow for a 51% increase in the number of beds. The money come from a combination of funds from Dignity Health, a loan, and outside donors.
