The Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center and Orthopaedic Hospital opened in January 2012 and is a result of the cooperative effort with UCLA. Spanning 85,000-square-feet and six floors, facilities at the campus include 266 inpatient beds; a 22-bed adult and pediatric Intensive Care Unit; and 16 state-of-the-art operating rooms. The facility strengthens Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital's premier position in the field of medicine and allows for expanded capabilities, enabling LAOH to accommodate up to 150,000 outpatient visits annually.
In addition to inpatient facilities, the new Orthopaedic Hospital houses the Renee and Meyer Luskin Children's Clinic, a bioengineering research laboratory and research space, faculty offices for the UCLA/Orthopaedic Hospital Department of Orthopaedics, residency facilities for the Orthopaedic Hospital/UCLA Residency Program and administrative offices for Orthopaedic Hospital.
Together, the Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center and Orthopaedic Hospital and the Los Angeles Orthopaedic Medical Center on the downtown campus provide the most advanced orthopaedic patient care available.
Renee and Meyer Luskin Children’s Clinic of Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital
Located in the Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center and Orthopaedic Hospital, the Renee and Meyer Luskin Children’s Clinic enlarges Orthopaedic Hospital’s footprint on the west side of Los Angeles so that more patients have access to LAOH’s world-renowned physicians and care. Opened in 2009 and relocated to its new home in January 2012, the spacious clinic features eight exam rooms each with a computer work station for sharing and reviewing x-rays with patients and their families, as well as specially-designed exam tables that move up and down so that patients in wheelchairs can be elevated. Another work area of the clinic is devoted to a tracking board system allowing physicians to monitor their patients as they move from waiting room to exam room to x-rays.
