Visalia Hospital Hopeful Voters Can Back Measure To Build New Acute Care Facility
ABC News

The largest hospital in Tulare County will be demolishing a small, empty building tomorrow, in order to make room for a much larger, earthquake compliant facility in the future.

The story starts in January of 1994, when the Northridge earthquake killed dozens, and damaged homes, schools, and more than a handful of hospitals.

Once the dust settled, new legislation was passed requiring acute care hospitals to be seismically compliant by 2030.
