O'Connor Hospital is a hospital in San Jose, CA.
The oldest remaining building was built in 1953. In 1969, an expansion to the hospital was built. In 1981-1982, a new main building was built. The older buildings are still in use, but they are no longer the main part of the hospital. In 2005, an emergency building was built.
Future plans for this building and the elevators
The 1953 part of the building may or may be demolished in the future due to it not complying with California hospital earthquake standards. Elevators in this hospital might be modernized soon, if they haven't recently been modernized.
