Roughly one truckload per minute poured its concrete into the pit.

A significant milestone is documented in the videos below of Loma Linda University Health’s construction of a new hospital complex by 2020. The foundation slab for the new structure began to take shape on the night of March 25-26, as 85 trucks delivered 5,400 cubic yards of concrete in 10 and a half hours. Two more pours will follow.

The building will be the future home of LLU Medical Center and add a new tower for LLU Children’s Hospital.
