A plan to transform the 90-acre site of the historic General Hospital into a more community-friendly space is currently in development.

The County of Los Angeles along with selected planning and architecture firms began an ongoing study this summer that will serve as a guide for the redevelopment of the LAC+USC Medical Center.

According to the project’s master plan, the study will address ways to promote healthy lifestyles and wellness, maximize community access to the Medical Center, provide opportunities for appropriate education and job training, and incorporate on-campus business opportunities.

Public outreach also outlines a major part of the project. Community members and stakeholders will be able to share input and discuss ideas and expectations for future development through interviews, community meetings and a website.
