The first new outpatient clinical space on the USC Health Sciences Campus in more than a decade is slated to open in January.
Norris Healthcare Center (HC3) will house the following departments and services: urology, an infusion center, women’s specialty care, breast imaging, transplant and an outpatient surgery center.
HC3 is a seven-story, 116,000-square-foot building, designed with patient privacy and comfort as its top priorities.
Patient care floors are equipped with the latest diagnostic and treatment technologies and will feature welcome centers and waiting areas.
Large, floor-to-ceiling windows on many floors will offer views of the San Gabriel Mountains and foothills, downtown Los Angeles and Dodger Stadium, and let plenty of natural light into the building.
“The building puts the needs of our patients and their families first, further elevating the high caliber of our care,” said Rod Hanners, COO of Keck Medicine of USC and CEO of Keck Medical Center of USC.
An additional valet parking station will be added in front of the Willametta Keck Day Healthcare Center (HC2) building to accommodate patients for both HC2 and HC3. Self-parking for HC3 patients will be available in the Keck Hospital Parking Structure adjacent to HC3.
On Dec. 11, floors two through five of the building were licensed by the California Department of Public Health, clearing one of the final hurdles for the opening of HC3.
The Norris Healthcare Center is located at 1516 San Pablo St. in Los Angeles, two doors down from Keck Hospital.
