The Annenberg Foundation has given $10 million to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center to help replace the facility damaged in a 1994 earthquake.
In recognition of the gift, the hospital will name its new concourse the Wallis Annenberg Concourse, which will connect the Reagan Hospital, the neuropsychiatric hospital and the children’s hospital.
The new medical center was designed by noted architect I.M. Pei and will be equipped with the most up-to-date medical technology available.
The three major hospitals comprising the complex also will include 520 private patient rooms, day beds for family members, wireless internet and outdoor play areas for pediatric patients.
The new facility will open once all staff have been trained and all new medical equipment is installed and operating correctly.
