CA Hospital Near Earthquake Epicenter Suffers Minimal Damage
Health Leaders Media

El Centro Regional Medical Center, a two-story, 165-bed hospital situated right along the fault line path that registered a 7.2 earthquake Sunday, did not sustain serious damage—though there were broken water lines in the older sections of the hospital. The lines were promptly repaired. Following the earthquake, the facility, about 10 miles from the U.S./Mexico border, received about 25 patients in its emergency room, including one who was seriously injured when a road sign fell on him.
