Methodist Hospital of Southern California in Arcadia is now part of Keck Medicine of USC and is now known as USC Arcadia Hospital.
“We are very fortunate to have found a complementary partner in USC Arcadia Hospital,” says Rod Hanners, CEO of Keck Medicine. “Its strength as a longstanding community hospital coupled with our academic health system will secure the legacy of both organizations and better meet the health care needs of the San Gabriel Valley community.”
Founded in 1903, USC Arcadia Hospital is a full-service community hospital with 348 licensed beds offering a variety of services, including advanced cardiovascular care, a comprehensive stroke center and an emergency department approved for pediatrics.
The hospital’s affiliation with USC — which was finalized on July 1 — brings San Gabriel Valley residents convenient access to Keck Medicine’s specialized care, research and breakthrough technology.
“Our hospital will be stronger as part of Keck Medicine of USC,” says Dan Ausman, president and CEO of USC Arcadia Hospital. “The partnership brings our community expanded access to a full range of physician specialties, technology and clinical services that will benefit our patients, employees and physicians.”
Investment in community, world-class care
Keck Medicine offers world-class care for both routine and highly complex cases, and it is nationally ranked in eight specialties by U.S. News & World Report.
Over the coming years, Keck Medicine will invest in USC Arcadia Hospital’s equipment, infrastructure and services. Areas of focus include expanded neurosciences, cardiac care and oncology services, complementing multispecialty outpatient services Keck Medicine currently provides in Arcadia.

Keck Medicine has a history of successful collaborations with regional hospitals and health enterprises, improving access to academic medicine in local communities.
With this affiliation, Keck Medicine now has two community hospitals in the northeast area of Los Angeles. USC Arcadia Hospital joins USC Verdugo Hills Hospital, which serves La Cañada Flintridge, Glendale and the greater Foothills community.
