Building a Healthier Future

A state-of-the-art new patient tower is rapidly taking shape in the heart of Hollywood at CHA Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center (CHA HPMC). One of the oldest hospitals in Los Angeles, CHA HPMC is expanding its campus with the addition of a $400 million new patient tower and creating job opportunities in the neighboring communities—all to further meet the community’s future healthcare needs, embracing the area’s diverse, multicultural patient populations.

CHA HPMC broke ground on the new five-story patient tower in May 2018. The new tower is designed to ensure that Hollywood’s first medical facility meets all current state seismic requirements. When CHA HPMC first opened its doors in 1924, it was the first hospital in Hollywood and one of the first in Los Angeles. Today, CHA HPMC has evolved into a 434-bed acute care facility, including 89 skilled nursing beds. The hospital has a medical staff of more than 500 physicians and specialists, representing 69 specialties and 75 different countries. It also employs more than 1,500 nurses, technicians and staff from the community. It is CHA HPMC’s mission to provide all who walk through its doors quality care in a compassionate manner.

CHA HPMC is a member of CHA Health Systems (CHS). A dynamic global healthcare organization, CHS also owns acute care hospitals, wellness and specialty clinics, and medical research facilities. The campus expansion is an additional element marking the onset of infusing CHS’ rich resources in research and innovations to create a plethora of care programs and services, using cutting-edge therapies, in partnership with world-renowned physicians.

Opening in 2022, the new patient tower will house a new and expanded Emergency Department, holistic women’s health center, state-of-the-art operating rooms, and several other modern facilities. The brand ‘CHA’ was built upon the foundation of providing comprehensive women’s health services, treatments, and research. As one of the first hospitals in the area to provide women’s health services, CHA HPMC will expand its maternity unit to be one of the largest in Los Angeles with more private labor/deliver/recovery rooms for mom and baby and expanded neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) staffed by renowned neonatologists and specialists. The patient tower will infuse world class research and technology, and bring top experts to innovate in this center to provide unparalleled services to community.
Dedicated patient care team remains at the heart of the medical center’s growth plan—as the services grow, so will the team of experts. The new patient tower will add several new jobs in the coming years and widen the organization’s reach within the region—continuing its recognition/tradition as one of Hollywood’s 10 largest employers.

CHA HPMC has made remarkable advances to deliver state-of-art care and innovative programs, using novel treatments and therapists, in partner with world-renowned physicians. The hospital offers world-class medical care through its centers of excellence such as the Southern California Eye Institute, Neuroscience Institute, Women’s Health Institute, and Orthopedic Institute. The medical center has brought on board leading robot-assisted surgical systems, da Vinci Xi System and CORI Surgical System, to optimize clinic outcomes and improve patient lives. The new patient tower will feature an advanced unit for medical and surgical care and offer more operating rooms.

Since it opened nearly 100 years ago, CHA HPMC has served as a cornerstone to its community’s health — a unique position which enables it to embrace all payors as one of the area’s only safety-net hospitals. The medical center continues to push improvements in care so that patients, regardless of socioeconomic status, get the best diagnosis. CHA HPMC’s care has been nationally recognized with several quality awards and designations, including from Healthgrades and the U.S. News & World Report. In addition to these remarkable advancements, CHA HPMC has an award-winning stroke center which will expand with the opening of the new patient tower.
The new patient tower marks the beginning of an exciting transformation of CHA HPMC’s current campus and its vision of building a healthier future for generations of patients and their loved ones who have trusted the hospital with their health and well-being for almost a century.
