Facility Background

Loma Linda University Medical Center (LLUMC) and Children’s Hospital (LLUCH) has one of the largest academic teaching and clinical programs in the United States. Regionally LLUMC is the only tertiary care hospital and the only Level 1 Regional Trauma Center for Inyo, Mono, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties. The Children’s Hospital is only one of eight Children’s Hospitals in the State of California. LLUMC’s primary service area comprises a quarter of the State of California’s total land area with a population of approximately 3.5 million people. Each year, LLUMC treats over 58,000 emergency cases, admits more than 33,000 inpatients, and serves over 500,000 outpatients.

Historical Background

California Senate Bill 1953 According to the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD), approximately 50 percent of California’s hospital buildings will be retrofitted, reconstructed or closed over the next 20 years to meet the requirements of California Senate Bill 1953 (SB 1953), the state’s legislative framework for hospital seismic safety. Loma Linda University Medical Center campus consists of multiple structures built between the years 1963 and 1993. As a result, the future focus of the main campus has shifted from retrofitting the existing towers to replacing those structures and the corresponding inpatient beds within.
