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.
