A project website offers a look at new angles of UCLA Health's upcoming neuropsychiatric hospital in the Mid-Wilshire neighborhood.

The project, which commenced work in March 2023, will occupy a site at 5900 Olympic Boulevard that was long the home of Olympia Medical Center, which shuttered in early 2021. The new campus will replace and expand upon the 74-bed Stewart and Lynda Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital, which is located at the UCLA's main campus in Westwood.

HOK and McCarthy Building Companies headline the design-build team for the new hospital, which will involve both new construction and the conversion of existing building. The finished product is intended to be a unified care facility catering to patients suffering from mental and behavioral health problems. plans call for a total of 119 beds, more than replacing all 74 beds at the existing Resnick facility, while also adding 20 observational beds.

The Mid-Wilshire hospital will also offer supportive functions such as food service, imaging, a pharmacy, lab areas, and administrative offices. Additionally, plans call for therapy spaces on each floor, rooftop terraces, and gardens at the ground level for use by both patients and staff.

The approximately 175,000-square foot hospital is scheduled for completion in Spring 2026. The total cost of the project has been estimated as $400-million.

The project originated as an alternative to the construction of a new neuropsychiatric wing within the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center complex, which UCLA Health estimated would cost $1 billion and take 12 years to complete.
