Slated to open in 2007, the new LAMC will have 464 patient rooms, 11 labor and delivery rooms and six cardiac surgery suites. The 912,000-sq. ft. facility will serve as Kaiser Permanenteâ€™s Southern Californian tertiary center for cardiovascular surgery, pediatric intensive care, neurosurgery, spine surgery and high-risk obstetrics.
To help protect the LAMC, Siemens will install its XLSV FireFinder system, a fire safety system with integrated digital emergency voice evac. The advanced technology enables the system to respond to a fire instantaneously, automatically activating alarms and engaging all emergency control operations within 3 sec. of a detected fire.
