Loma Linda University Medical Center Campus Transformation

The $843M, 17-story Loma Linda University Medical Center Campus Transformation project provided a new HCAI Type 1 hospital tower standing at 268 feet, making it the tallest hospital in California. Opened in 2021, the new tower is connected to an adjacent active hospital tower by a common base comprising the bottom five floors. This base includes maternity services, adult surgical suites, and diagnostic imaging, in addition to the adult and pediatric emergency departments, kitchens, cafeterias, and sterile processing.

Two parking structures were constructed supporting the new hospital complex, one for patients and another for faculty. Coffman partnered with McCarthy in a design-assist capacity to provide smoke control inspection services on this campus transformation project that enhances the acute care services for local southern California residents. The team utilized LEAN methods such as BlueBeam Studio Sessions and 3D BIM to increase efficiencies throughout the process and the team.
