LOS ANGELES — Keck Medicine of USC announces that Methodist Hospital of Southern California in Arcadia is now part of Keck Medicine, and will be known as USC Arcadia Hospital. The affiliation was finalized on July 1.
“We are very fortunate to have found a complementary partner in USC Arcadia Hospital,” said Rod Hanners, CEO of Keck Medicine. “Its strength as a long-standing 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.”

“Our hospital will be stronger as part of Keck Medicine of USC,” said 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.”
Over the coming years, Keck Medicine will invest in USC Arcadia Hospital’s equipment, infrastructure and services. The areas of focus include expanded neurosciences, cardiac care and oncology services.
