The LAC+USC Medical Center in Boyle Heights on Oct. 27 unveiled a $4.6 million renovation of a half-century-old ambulatory care clinic, the largest in Los Angeles County.

The new clinic features 13,000 square feet of open floorspace surrounded by new exam, consultation and group clinic rooms, with new space for patient education and conferences. It serves more than 30,000 patients a year.

“This beautifully remodeled clinic creates a new experience of care for our patients,” Dr. Mitchell Katz, who oversees the L.A. County Health Agency and its Department of Health Services, which runs four county hospitals and a network of outpatient clinics, said in a statement. “It is a perfect example of the transformation we have undertaken in DHS under health care reform to place the patient at the very cent of the care team.”
