Loma Linda University Medical Center
Loma Linda, CA
Berg-Helix JV is currently working on the new 16-story adult hospital and expanded children’s hospital on the Loma Linda University Medical Center campus as part of the “Vision 2020,” the campus transformation campaign. The project is intended to propel healthcare and wholeness at a higher level of performance within the community and around the world.
Loma Linda University Health launched this hospital construction effort in response to stringent California state regulations mandating that all hospitals in the state meet new seismic safety standards by 2020, or be shut down. As a Level 1 Trauma Center, Loma Linda University Health provides care to a large, underserved population in the Inland Empire region. The organization’s two main hospitals (Loma Linda University Medical Center and Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital) also provide training to thousands of students and residents each year.
The hospital will not only be the tallest building in San Bernardino County, but it will also be considered one of the safest in the state. The project is implementing a first-of-its-kind vertical earthquake isolation system which separates the building from the ground using more than 500 vertical shock absorbers—a large-scale version of a modern car suspension system.
To LLUH officials and patients, the adult hospital will be known as the Dennis and Carol Troesh Medical Campus, and features many amenities, including a 60-seat chapel, a conference center, 16 stories, a basement floor and a new helipad.
Both the children’s hospital expansion and the new adult hospital will include private patient rooms to “enhance the efficiency of (its) hospital-based care” and private emergency departments for children and adults.
The campus transformation project is expected to be completed by 2020.
