L.A. Short of Hospital Beds. Why?

By | December 29, 2020 | 0 Comments

Old LA County Hospital had 3000 beds in 1950s. By 1960s down to 1200. New building 600 beds. Old bldg “unsafe” but still used for offices. Wards & rooms could have been restored in months. Expandable bldg key to disasters, epidemics. Can be vertical with unused floors, like this one, or horizontal with unused wards, like World War 2 Army hospitals.
