Turning from Welch Rd into LPCH driveway
Set to open in 2017, the expansion will include 149 new patient beds, 6 new surgical suites, 3.5 acres of healing gardens, and more.
To date: 6,150 cubic yards of structural concrete have been poured. There will be 110,000 cubic yards in total, which would fill 500,000 bathtubs.
12 million pounds of reinforcing steel has been installed. There will be 20 mill pounds in total - more than the Eiffel Tower!
36,250 truckloads of soil have been removed, enough to fill 2,700 backyard swimming pools.
