On this page, you’ll find answers to common questions about the newly completed Dennis and Carol Troesh Medical Campus. This includes the new Medical Center tower and Children’s Hospital expansion tower.
What are the new hospital towers called?
The new towers don’t have separate names — they’re expansions to our existing hospitals. Here’s how everything fits together:
- Loma Linda University Medical Center is our hospital for adult patients. The hospital includes the existing cloverleaf hospital built in the 1960s and the new 16-story hospital tower.
- Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital is our hospital for kids. The hospital includes the existing facilities connected to the cloverleaf hospital and the new nine-story hospital tower.
- The Dennis and Carol Troesh Medical Campus is the name for the entirety of the new building. The medical campus includes the new adult tower, the new children’s expansion tower and the shared five-story structure at their bases.
Why did you build the new hospitals?
We learned Loma Linda University Medical Center — along with about half of the state's other hospitals — would soon not meet California's latest earthquake safety requirements for acute, inpatient care. To make sure we could continue serving our community, we started planning the new, earthquake-safe medical campus nearly a decade ago.
The newly completed Dennis and Carol Troesh Medical Campus allows us to continue leading the region in healthcare. The adult and children’s hospital towers provide you with new services, more access to care, state-of-the-art technology and much more.
What’s different about the new hospitals?
The new hospital towers have a lot to offer patients and their loved ones. Some of the most impactful features include:
- State-of-the-art facilities to support growing, evolving healthcare needs far into the future
- Improved services, like the San Manuel Maternity Pavilion, standalone emergency departments for adults and kids, 20 new operating rooms (plus two hybrid operating rooms) to treat the most complex conditions, and private patient rooms for a more comfortable healing experience
- Earthquake-ready construction that exceeds the state’s new requirements and keeps everyone in our hospitals as safe as possible
- Increased capacity for care, allowing us to serve more of our community than ever before
Which services are moving to the new hospital towers?
Services moving to the new towers are as follows:
- Adult inpatient care has moved to the new Medical Center tower. Other adult care services will continue to be available at their current locations.
- Maternity care has moved to the fifth floor of the new Children’s Hospital expansion tower.
- Pediatric diagnostics and imaging has moved to the new Children’s Hospital expansion tower.
- Pediatric acute care has expanded and will be available in both the existing and new facilities. The NICU and PICU have not moved.
