OIC site

Construction has begun on the new medical pavilion at Orthopaedic Institute for Children (OIC) in Los Angeles.

The new medical pavilion involves a major reconstruction and reimagining of the OIC 1959 Lowman Building to transform it into a pediatric facility. Housed within the new medical pavilion will be an expanded urgent care center and pharmacy, a pediatric fracture clinic, a new physical therapy center, a state-of-the-art imaging center, a new lecture hall, three new classrooms, and a new virtual-reality surgical training lab, the hospital said in a statement.

The redesigned urgent care center will have 14 private exam rooms, two triage rooms and two procedure rooms. The radiology center, co-located with the urgent care center, will feature three state-of-the-art diagnostic X-ray machines. The functional and efficient pediatric fracture clinic will have 14 exam rooms and a staff.

Construction is expected to be completed in winter 2019.
