Aerial view of East Los Angeles and Boyle Heights neighborhoods revealing the construction site of the future Art Deco Los Angeles County General Hospital (center). 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.
