Patients being moved to the new, improved Los Angeles County-USC
Los Angeles Times, November 10, 2008
For three-quarters of a century, Los Angeles County's flagship public hospital called a cavernous Depression-era building home. The hospital was drab, with few windows. Most wards housed six patients to a room, few were air-conditioned. But at the end of a two-day move, the county's neediest patients instead will be cared for in a $1.02-billion state-of-the-art facility.
