LOS ANGELES—On Friday, July 17, the LAC+USC Medical Center, located at 2051 Marengo St., asked for the public’s assistance in identifying a patient.
The patient’s name is unknown, but he is an adult Hispanic male whose estimated age is between 35-40 years old. He has a “thin” build and a weight of 144 lbs. He is also 5’5” tall with black hair and brown eyes.
EMT paramedics transported the patient to the LAC+USC Medical Center on July 13, after picking up on the streets around 2130 W. 7th street in Los Angeles. He does not have any visible tattoos, but he notably has “some” missing upper teeth.
Anyone with information regarding the patient should call Yen Sau of the LAC+USC Medical Center’s Department of Social Work at (323) 409-5253.
The LAC+USC Medical Center is affiliated with the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine—1,500 of the hospital’s physicians are from there—and the Los Angeles County College of Nursing and Allied Health. Since it is an “academic teaching hospital” as well as a public hospital, almost 1,000 “medical interns and residents” staff the medical center too. The hospital also boasts its array of special units, including a Burn Center, a Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, a Level 1 Trauma Center, and the Rand Schrader HIV/AIDS Clinic.
