The Great VMC Earthquake of 1906

VMC post 1906 earthquake105 years ago today, the Great San Francisco Earthquake nearly destroyed the hospital now known as Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. The damage, as you can see from the photograph, was extensive.

Fortunately, VMC already has a jump on the next big one. Construction of a new, seismically-sound hospital wing (replacing buildings not quite as old as 1906) is well underway, set to open in 2014.
