Commentaire



From Pacific Alliance Medical Center's website, 25 November 2015:
PAMC has a rich history that dates back to the days when Los Angeles was no more than a small dusty agricultural community with a population of 1,500. In 1860, The French Society was founded as a pre-paid health plan for newly arrived French citizens. The Society soon realized that the growing French community needed a hospital. In 1869, it constructed the French Hospital at the corner of College and Hill Street, making it Los Angeles’ first hospital. That hospital is now known as Pacific Alliance Medical Center. The landmark Joan of Arc statue still stands today on our front lawn as a proud reminder of this period in our city's history.
By the 1900s, the once predominate French community welcomed Chinese immigrants working in the railroads and agriculture. The area became known as Chinatown
