Los Angeles Dignity Well being hospital completes childhood schooling middle
Dignity Health – Los Angeles California Hospital Medical Center announced that construction is complete on Nests, an early childhood education center expected to open this fall.
The center for homeless and underserved families will accommodate up to 32 infants and toddlers, including children with special needs.
“One of the biggest impacts from the pandemic has been job losses,” said Alina Moran, the hospital’s president and CEO, in a July 15 press release. “For families with young children, finding new jobs can be challenging and affordable childcare resources are limited. That’s why we’re so proud to offer low-income children who otherwise have no access to exceptional indoor and outdoor spaces to learn and grow in such services. “
The Nest project started last November. The Penta Building Group, which led the construction of the playground, contributed their in-kind contributions to the project with the help of local trading partners, the hospital said. Perkins & Will, a Los Angeles-based team of architects and designers, designed the center.
The Nest is the fourth early care and education center of the Hope Street Margolis Family Center, a community health, education, and recreational facility of the California Hospital Medical Center.
The Medical Center is a 318-bed acute care nonprofit in downtown Los Angeles.
