The group will meet for a light breakfast and then don hard hats for a private tour. Participants would need to come dressed in long pants and some type of boots. Parking will be reserved for the group in Lot W, which is just off Anderson Street behind the Del Webb Library. A map is attached with yellow highlighting showing the route to the meeting location. We will meet in the Faculty Reading Room, which is adjacent to Magan Hall. There will be staff in the parking area and entrance to the building to direct guests to the meeting location.

Dr. Richard Hart hosts tour of Loma Linda University’s new construction site for adult and children’s towers.
To meet the State of California’s 2020 seismic standards for hospitals and to better meet the needs of patients and families for years to come, Loma Linda University Health is constructing a new adult hospital and expanding its Children’s Hospital. The two new towers will feature private rooms to enhance patient care and better facilitate the education of student training in the health professions, many of whom will continue their service in our communities. The second floor will have separate emergency rooms dedicated to care for adults and children.
At 268 feet high, the Medical Center will be the second tallest building in San Bernardino County and the tallest hospital in California. The entire project contains roughly 27,000 tons of steel. If melted down to a one-inch diameter cable, it would stretch from Loma Linda to New York City with 300 miles to spare. The new facilities, located on the Dennis and Carol Troesh Medical Campus, will open in the spring of 2021.
