Address: 1720 East Cesar E Chavez Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90033 The property is owned by Adventist Health White Memorial Project Director: Leticia Espinoza Phone Number: 559-906-8665 E-mail Address: email@example.com Website Address: https://www.adventisthealth.org/white-memorial/ Project Type: Equipment - Only Total Funding Request:$1,850,000 Purpose: The purpose of the proposed project is to ensure health equity for east and south Los Angeles, and especially for those residents experiencing long-term COVID health impact and co-morbidities like diabetes through its $16.6 million facility improvement initiative, which includes $5.8 million in new equipment that will increase Catheterization Laboratory (Cath Lab) and Operating Room (OR) capacity to treat more patients, while providing a wider range and depth of assessment/treatment services. As a FEMA Mass Vaccination Site and 80-bed FEMA Alternative Care Facility, we are committed to caring for patients with long-term COVID impact, including the large low-income Latinx population that comprises the majority of our 140,000 annual patients visits. For immunocompromised and diabetic patients, COVID-19 hastens the progression of illnesses to acute levels and severely complicates the delivery of time-sensitive diagnostic imaging and surgical procedures, and therefore, this request for equipment acquisition ensures AHWM's long-term operational sustainability, pandemic readiness, and quality services. It also ensures AHWM’s use of the best technologies to perform a range of lifesaving surgeries and cardiovascular procedures that will directly benefit the 90% Latino patient service area population who otherwise will not likely receive the same level of care at other Los Angeles hospitals. Description of Scope: Adventist Health White Memorial (AHWM) intends to create two (2) Cardiac Catheterization rooms on the Ground Floor of the Specialty Care Tower, relocated from the 1st floor. The ne
w space is adjacent to their existing EP laboratory. An eight (8) bed PACU will also be added to support both the new Cardiac Catheterization Labs and the two (2) existing EP labs. Once the ground floor Cath Lab area has been approved for use, the current 1st floor Cath Lab location will be vacated to provide space for two (2) New Operating Rooms. AHWM will use the fund to purchase critical Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories and Operating Room Equipment.
