We provide training to approximately 200 residents and fellows in 19 programs. The 465-bed medical center is the tertiary referral hospital for 4.5 million Kaiser Permanente members. We serve as a teaching hospital for USC, UCLA and CHLA.
Kaiser Permanente offers an unparalleled diversity of patients spanning from primary care to complex tertiary cases. Our patient population reflects Southern California: 34 percent Caucasian, 37 percent Latino, 13 percent African-American, and 9 percent Asian.
More than 2,000 major gynecological operations are performed annually at LAMC, so our residents are assured of a comprehensive surgical training. In addition, our senior residents do surgical rotations at our sister medical centers in West Los Angeles and Fontana, both of which are MIGS (minimally invasive gynecologic surgery) centers. LAMC averages 2,500 deliveries annually. We actively promote VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean), and our c-section rate averages 16- 20 percent. Most ancillary services are available 24 hours a day, everyday.
