Engineering marvel: Arrowhead Medical Center (ARMC)
- ARMC is a 456-bed county hospital. Ninety of the total 456 hospital beds are behavioral health and 366 are hospital inpatient beds.
- The hospital building is located nine miles from the San Andreas and two miles from the San Jacinto active fault lines, the new center is designed to remain self-sufficient for a minimum of three days after an 8.3 magnitude earthquake. The facility uses a combination of elastomeric base isolators and hydraulic viscous dampers (similar to those used in an MX missile silo) to absorb the energy generated during a seismic event and to protect the building’s structural integrity. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arrowhead_Regional_Medical_Center
