New Patient Tower Will Create Job Opportunities and More Space for Care


LOS ANGELES—CHA Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center, a hospital that is a member of CHA Health Systems, a global network providing a full spectrum of dynamic healthcare services, held a topping out and beam signing ceremony to celebrate a significant milestone, the structural completion of the new patient tower. The event was held on the morning of Tuesday, February 4.


Topping out is a construction tradition used to commemorate the installation of the final piece of steelwork on large construction projects. More than 500 people – hospital leaders, employees, staff, physicians, and construction team members – cheered as the final steel beam and a tree were placed atop the steel structure adorned with the American flag, which will become the hospital’s new inpatient tower.


“We have made, and continue to make, remarkable leaps to deliver state-of-art care and innovative programs at CHA HPMC. The new Patient Tower will be an additional element and the onset of infusing our corporate CHA Health Systems’ rich resources in research and innovations to create a plethora of care programs and services, using cutting-edge therapies in partnership with nationally and world renowned physicians,” said Robert Allen, CHA HPMC President and Chief Executive Officer.

The hospital first broke ground on the new five-story patient tower – part of a three-phase, $400 million upgrade – in May 2018. Equipped with the latest technology, the new patient tower will house an expanded emergency department, NICU with specialists from Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, state-of-the-art labor and delivery rooms, and more private patient rooms – slated for completion in 2021. Along with the campus expansion, strategic plans are in place to recruit world-class specialists in various areas, to fulfill the CHA Health System’s commitment to provide the highest quality care to the entire Los Angeles community and beyond.


“After today, we start wrapping the building to get it ready for the hospital interior, which will take another year and a half,” noted Alan. “In the future, we will be expanding our medical office facilities, as well as improving our seismic facilities.”
