Obstetrics Gynecology Los Angeles Medical Center - Facilities
The Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center provides 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 Kaiser Permanente SOM, USC, UCLA and CHLA.
Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles provides a broad spectrum of patient care spanning primary care through complex tertiary cases. We serve an unparalleled diverse group of patients. Our patient population reflects Southern California: 34 percent Caucasian, 37 percent Latino, 13 percent African American, and 9 percent Asian.
More than 2,500 major gynecological operations are performed annually at LAMC, so our residents are assured 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 designated Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery centers.
Our Labor and Delivery Suite houses a triage area, 11 Labor Delivery and Recovery rooms and 3 dedicated operating rooms that function 24/7. We average 2,500 deliveries annually. We actively promote vaginal birth after cesarean and our c-section rate averages 16- 22 percent. As a tertiary care center, we accept the transfer of patients from all our Southern California Kaiser Permanente medical centers for complicated maternal and fetal coordinated prenatal, labor and delivery care often in conjunction with consultation services including our level III Nursery. Our maternity floor houses the hospital’s healing garden, dedicated to the work of our employees, nurses, and physicians during the pandemic. Our new OBGYN Resident work room, abuts this garden and creates a space for work and wellness.
