California Hospitals Using HAZUS-MH - UPDATE

California has had a long running program requiring hospitals to seismically upgrade so that they can survive the inevitable earthquake. The state has prepared a list of vulnerable hospital buildings, based on construction, that were required to be upgraded/replaced.

Starting in 2004 California began using HAZUS-MH to let hospitals determine a specific building’s danger of collapse ... this allowed the state and hospitals to narrow in and allow people to put the focus on the buildings most at-risk.
