Description
Three images printed on one sheet.
L.A. County Hospital and USC Medical School were first affiliated in 1885, so the hospital is commonly known as Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, as well as County USC. It has become one of the largest and busiest public hospitals and medical training centers in the western United States; offering 745 inpatient beds, treating over 28% of the region's trauma victims, recording nearly 39,000 inpatient discharges, 150,000 emergency department visits, and approximately 1 million ambulatory care visits per year.
Six men, possibly physicians or hospital administrators, secure the iron main entrance gates outside of the newly opened art deco style Los Angeles County General Hospital located in Boyle Heights.
