Why does Antelope Valley need a new hospital?

  • Antelope Valley Hospital serves more than 220,000 patients each year.
  • Caring for nearly 130,000 Emergency Room patients each year.
  • Treating over 800 stroke patients each year.
  • Delivering 4,500 babies each year.

Antelope Valley Hospital houses the only trauma center in the region, but the outdated hospital facility cannot continue to meet the community’s needs.

Improving the Quality of Care

Antelope Valley Hospital is doing its best to serve its patients, but the healthcare needs of the Antelope Valley have outgrown the medical center. A new hospital will:

  • Attract & keep the best doctors & nurses
  • Provide the best possible care for your family

Better Facilities and the Latest Technology

Antelope Valley Hospital is the only trauma center in the area – and the third busiest Emergency Room in the state. It has the only pediatric, inpatient mental health and cardiac programs in the region, providing life-saving care. A new, improved hospital will:

  • Bring the latest technology to Antelope Valley
  • Improve patient privacy

Ensuring Earthquake Preparedness

A hospital must be prepared to care for Antelope Valley families in times of natural disasters. Unfortunately, the current hospital facility:

  • Will not meet California’s new earthquake safety requirements.
  • If a new facility is not built, Antelope Valley Hospital will lose use of large sections of the current building, which house patient care areas. This is mandated by Assembly Bill 2190.
