Hospice & Palliative Medicine Los Angeles Medical Center - Facility

Fellows spend the majority of their fellowship year divided between two Kaiser Permanente medical centers: Los Angeles Medical Center (LAMC) and West Los Angeles Medical Center (WLA). They also rotate at City of Hope to experience providing care at a Comprehensive Cancer Center and at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles as part of their pediatric palliative care rotation.

The Los Angeles Medical Center serves as a referral center for more than 3 million Kaiser Permanente members throughout Southern California. It is a major tertiary care facility for services including cardiac catheterization, cardiac surgery, hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, bone marrow transplantation, aphaeresis, oncology, radiation oncology, neurosurgery, and specialized urologic surgery. The Medical Center also maintains an active teaching program offering residencies and fellowship programs in all major medical and surgical subspecialty services. It also hosts students from Kaiser Permanente’s own Bernard J. Tyson School of medicine as well as those from UCLA and USC.

Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles Medical Center provides a uniquely different experience. The medical center serves the community of West and South Los Angeles, and provides comprehensive care in multiple specialties, including bariatric surgery, sickle cell disease, transgender care, and urology. With fewer trainees on site, our fellows interface more directly with attending-level consulting providers, which provides an experience more akin to the experience of a community hospital.
