“The HOK team delivered the project in a way that met all of the organization’s requirements, goals and aspirations. The project opened on budget and on time. I couldn’t be more supportive of the HOK team and want to endorse their performance.”
“In a billion-dollar project that spanned 10 years from programming through commissioning, Los Angeles County has replaced five existing hospitals, including its original, iconic General Hospital building, with a modern, 1.5 million-square-foot facility,” reported Health Facilities Management.
Designed by a joint venture of HOK and LBL Associated Architects, the facility includes a 600-bed inpatient tower, a 430,000-sq.-ft. diagnostic and treatment building, and a 335,000-sq.-ft. outpatient building.
Los Angeles County achieved significant capital and operational savings through new efficiencies, reduced square footage and higher utilization of major medical equipment. The centralized layout of diagnostic and treatment services enables caregivers to serve inpatients and outpatients while maintaining separate circulation paths for each.
