The Keck Medical Center of USC’s tradition of medical care to residents of the San Gabriel Valley continues with an expanded medical office expected to open on April 30.
Keck Medical Center of USC Pasadena will be home to more than 40 Keck Medical Center faculty physicians, providing services in specialty areas, including oncology, gynecological oncology, head and neck cancer, cardiovascular and thoracic care, dermatology, rheumatology, endocrinology, ophthalmology, neurosurgery, colorectal surgery, urology, vascular care, general and plastic surgery, and some primary care services.
“We have a proud history of serving the San Gabriel Valley and are delighted to introduce a new location that will be more convenient for our patients in the area,” said Scott Evans, chief operating officer and interim CEO of Keck Hospital of USC and USC Norris Cancer Hospital. “Several practices will be consolidated into this new location to provide outstanding care and an exceptional patient experience.”
The 22,000-square-foot medical office at the Huntington Pavilion occupies the top floor of the four-story building at 625 S. Fair Oaks Ave.
“The Keck Medical Center of USC Pasadena adds to our city’s growing reputation as a premier destination for medical services and biomedical research,” said Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard. “Our citizens have relied on the expertise of USC faculty physicians for years. We appreciate this important expansion of USC’s world-class services.”
In addition to the new Pasadena space, the medical center faculty physicians practice at other locations, such as La Cañada Flintridge, Beverly Hills and downtown Los Angeles; clinics at Healthcare Consultation Centers I and II on the USC Health Sciences campus; and at USC-affiliated Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and Los Angeles County + USC Medical Center.
The physicians also provide medical and surgical care at the USC-owned Keck Hospital and Norris Cancer Hospital, both part of the Keck Medical Center. The Keck Medical Center of USC name was launched in 2011 thanks to a $150 million naming gift from the W. M. Keck Foundation provided to USC to accelerate groundbreaking medical, clinical and translational research and education.
“The generous gift from the W. M. Keck Foundation is paving the way for our skilled and innovative physicians to better serve the San Gabriel Valley, Foothill communities and all of Southern California,” said Thomas E. Jackiewicz, senior vice president and CEO of USC Health. “It’s gratifying to bring more people into the Trojan Family through delivery of our top-notch health care services.”
The Keck Medical Center includes more than 500 physicians and specialists who are full-time faculty members of the renowned Keck School.
