"I am excited that soon we will open our state-of-the-art adult hospital, launching a new chapter in how, together, we offer outstanding patient care. For all of us, our new home will be a place to continue to impact lives in a beautiful, healing environment."
As we expand to better serve your needs, we want to keep you in the know. Opening in spring 2021, the new Loma Linda University Medical Center tower on the Dennis and Carol Troesh Medical Campus will stand at 268 feet — making it the tallest hospital in California. But what's truly exciting is the impact this transformation will make on the region as it advances our ability to continue providing excellent healthcare. The new Medical Center tower is more than a building; it's a beacon of hope for brighter, better tomorrows in this community.

Where do I park and enter the hospital during construction?
Here is what you need to know about parking, valet and entering the hospital during our campus transformation.
I have heard about another new tower being constructed adjacent to this one. What is it?
This is our Children’s Hospital Tower, opening in spring 2021. This campus transformation of Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital will profoundly enhance the experience we provide patients and families.
What floors will be shared by the new towers?
The new towers are joined by a common base made up of the bottom five floors. This base includes maternity services, adult surgical suites and diagnostic imaging in addition to the adult and pediatric emergency departments, kitchens, cafeterias and sterile processing.
Will mothers give birth at the new Medical Center tower?
Mothers will deliver at the new San Manuel Maternity Pavilion of Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital, which is also opening in spring 2021.
I have heard about a new underground tunnel and bridge connections between the existing hospital and the new tower. What will those be like?
These projects will provide hospital connections between the new towers. The hospital connectors allow our teams to care for patients seamlessly throughout both buildings.
What can you tell me about the earthquake safety of the new towers?
The new towers are engineered for optimal building safety and fixed on 126 base isolators designed to withstand a major earthquake. The amount of steel used is enough to build two and a half Eiffel Towers. In addition, a powerful new generator will keep our lifesaving services running in the event of natural disaster.
