HistoryEdit

The hospital was founded in 1926 by two doctors. In 1941 the hospital was acquired by the Lutheran Hospital Society of Southern California, who also owned California Hospital Medical Center.[4]

In 1986, the $36 million six-story Merle Norman Pavilion addition was constructed, which held 107 beds and two thirds of them being private rooms.[5] In 1988, LHS merged with HealthWest, the parent company of Northridge Hospital, to form UniHealth.[6]

In 1995, UCLA Medical Center bought Santa Monica Hospital from UniHealth.[7]

In 2007 the 16,000 square foot Nethercutt Emergency Center was opened and contains 22 beds.[8]
