Harbor-UCLA Medical Center is a 373 bed facility staffed by more than 4,000 dedicated individuals located in the South Bay area of Los Angeles. Harbor-UCLA is a public teaching hospital that is well known for its academic excellence and commitment to disadvantaged communities in Los Angeles.



HISTORY

For the past fifty years the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center has served the southwestern community of Los Angeles County. The original facility opened in 1943 as a U.S. Army station hospital.


OUR NEW CAMPUS

A new campus master plan outlining the future layout of the site was introduced in June 2012. Los Angeles County officials, who commissioned the plan, expect it to guide a series of construction projects over the next two decades.
