Los Angeles County-University of Southern California Medical Center is one of the largest medical training centers in the United States and one of the busiest public hospitals west of the Mississippi. In late 2008, LAC+USC opened the doors to its new billion-dollar, state-of-the-art, 600-bed hospital consisting of three linked buildings: a clinic tower, a diagnostic and treatment tower, and an inpatient tower.
Design through construction for the LAC+USC Medical Center took more than 10 years to coordinate lighting design alone. Throughout, the design team continuously updated lighting to the latest technology, incorporating smaller fixtures and increasingly efficient lamps. This ensured the LAC+USC Medical Center featured the most current lighting design when it opened.
