UCLA Medical Center makes its move
UCLA Medical Center’s new hospital has admitted its first patients after successfully moving patients across the street from its old facility in a tightly scheduled operation. The 335 patients were moved at the rate of one every two minutes, and the operation capped years of planning that began after the 1994 Northridge earthquake badly damaged the old site. The opening came after significant delays, with the facility's cost growing from $597.7 million to $829.3 million.
