Situated just 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.
The Arrowhead Regional Medical Center is the first facility in the U.S. to use film-less radiology hospital-wide. This system makes digital images, which are instantly available for viewing at multiple stations throughout the facility for faster and more accurate diagnosis.
Image Guided Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy is offered as part of the Medical Imaging Department.
