Keck School of Medicine of USC (University of Southern California) is planning for the construction of a new hospital on its Health Sciences Campus in Los Angeles.

The new facility will integrate medical and surgical advances with evolving technologies from other fields, such as artificial intelligence and nanotechnology. It also will include collaborations with allied health professions from the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC, the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work and the USC School of Pharmacy, and will be informed by the USC Viterbi School of Engineering, the USC Price School of Public Policy, the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology and other schools.

Creative concepts for the new facility will be further developed over the next several months, followed by planning and design. Construction could begin as soon as 2020, with plans for completion by 2026.
