Officials map the future at Harbor-UCLA
Daily Breeze - Los Angeles

The wooden barracks built by the Army in 1943 as part of a military hospital and embarkation station were never intended to last long.

But nearly 70 years later, the same structures, some now termite-infested, dot the campus of County Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and are still used as clinics, research labs and medical offices.

“They are being used for purposes now that nobody anticipated,” said Dan Rosenfeld, senior deputy of economic development for Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, who represents the region.
