Floor Maps of AVH

Posted by Laura on February 8, 2011

When you are told to go to 3rd tower, do you know where that is? If you are like me at all, you might have wondered where the tower part of the name comes from and why don’t they just say the 3rd floor?

A little history

Antelope Valley Hospital was first opened in 1949 with 11 hospital beds. It went to 41 beds in 1953 to 86, 149 to 184 in 1974. In 1988 the Tower of Progress was added to the west side of the hospital. At the time, this was the tallest building in Antelope Valley, bringing the capacity to 260 beds. This explains why some of the department locations are called 3rd Tower instead of 3rd floor. The E (elevator) located on the left center of the building, is where we enter.
