OIC has changed the path of tens of thousands of children and we’re just getting started with the public phase of our 2020 campaign: A Vison For Our Future. The bulk of the $20 million endeavor will support the major reconstruction of the Lowman Building that will be transformed into a state-of-the-art medical pavilion.
Inside the new medical pavilion will be the largest pediatric orthopaedic urgent care center in the United States. It will include a new fracture clinic, physical therapy center, research laboratories, pharmacy, radiology center and lecture hall. This transformation follows our brand new Ambulatory Surgery Center that opened just 20 months ago and has dramatically improved access to surgeries for underserved children.
Our vision to be the preeminent provider of pediatric orthopaedic care in southern CA and beyond is clear. We have recruited more physicians and nurse practitioners than any other institution in Southern CA, published hundreds of our scientific discoveries, trained aspiring surgeons and researchers and reached across borders to improve the lives of our international children.
The 2020 campaign will ensure our expert surgeons, doctors, and nurses have the best facilities and equipment to care for the increasing numbers of children who come through our doors. We invite you to meet some of our children and their heartwarming experiences.
