Officials consider adding more beds to County/USC Medical Center
Los Angeles Times

Faced with severe overcrowding and emergency room wait times that average 12 hours, Los Angeles County officials are considering adding 150 more beds to County/USC Medical Center.

The county opened a new state-of-the-art hospital in 2008 to replace an aging general hospital tower. But even before the doors opened, officials worried that it wouldn’t be big enough. The new hospital has 600 inpatient beds, 224 fewer than its predecessor.
