What, the new one or the old one?LT8R said:I'd say UCLA's new medical center is pretty nice. I haven't been inside yet but it looks pretty awesome. They could have chosen a better name for it.

The old one's crap and has the world's most confusing bottom level EVER, not to mention the tiniest little ER. In the basement.
The new one's not open. Since you mentioned "better name" I'm imagining this is the one you're talking about. Poor Ronnie.
My vote's for TMC.
The only beef i have with the TMC is that there is little if no communication between the hospitals and schools. Most are private and they are all somewhat mad at one another for something that the other did. There are at least 4 private hospitals, 1-2 public hospitals, and 2 medical schools....if they got their crap together it would be spectacular.arkroyal said:i would say texas medical center
Not thaaaat soon. 2007. By the time you reach your 3/4 years at UCLA Geffen.LT8R said:Did you read my post?
I used to do research in the ED at UCLA, I agree, the old hospital sucks a$$. But it is going to be replaced very soon.
I know right. Wasn't it supposed to open last spring? It doesn't surprise me that the construction and admissions office are moving at the same pace. BureaucraciesElastase said:Not thaaaat soon. 2007. By the time you reach your 3/4 years at UCLA Geffen.

MED_04 said:the Texas Medical Center is twice as big as the second largest med.center
it boasts 12 world-class hospitals and over 100,000 employees
There hasn't been one day in TMC history without some massive contruction project going on. They are expanding Herman hospital as well as adding another research wing at my school. And just for the record there are currently 3 medical schools in the TMC, Tulane med students moved here after Katrina.karirunner said:TMC definitely- everything you ever wanted and more in terms of diversity of patients served, specialities, all that good stuff. Plus, a crap-tacular little weekly newspaper that it puts out (all PR press releases from the hospitals and ads for condos).

It is the largest in the world and continues to expand:
These pictures do not even include Shriner's Hospital and Texas Orthopaedic Hospital
Same here. I haven't seen the inside, but exterior looks really nice.LT8R said:I'd say UCLA's new medical center is pretty nice. I haven't been inside yet but it looks pretty awesome. They could have chosen a better name for it.

Does everyone think it is better, though, than Mass Gen, Brigham and Womens, Beth Israel, Dana Farber, not to mention the research that goes on at HMS and the collaborations at MIT, etc. if they were all in one center? I'm not so sure.
