This hospital, developed by members of the Ancient Arabic Order of Nobles of the Mystic Shrine (A.A.O.N.M.S), commonly known as the Shriners, served children in Southern California between 1952 and 2017. The Los Angeles facility was closed and a new one opened in Pasadena, called the "Shriners for Children Medical Center."

Building History

The Los Angeles architectural firm of Chambers and Hibbard designed this hospital for the Shriners in 1952. It functioned as a facility assisting children for 65 years until its land was sold for $24.5 million to the Mitaa Group, a real estate investment company headed by neurologist, Dr. Kyung Cho. According to a report on the web site, The Real Deal.com, "Mitaa Group filed documents to build a 132-unit elderly care facility on the 2.25-acre property in May. Plans called for an assisted living complex with a medical and research clinic." (See Natalie Hoberman, The Real Deal.com, "Former Shriners Hospital near Koreatown trades for $24M," published 11/22/2017, accessed 01/29/2019.)
