The Central Los Santos Medical Center is a general hospital in Grand Theft Auto V located on Crusade Road and Innocence Boulevard, in the eastern side of the neighborhood of Strawberry in Los Santos, San Andreas. It is based on the LAC+USC Medical Center of Los Angeles.
The Central Los Santos Medical Center serves the southern neighborhoods of Los Santos. It has departments of Urology, Radiology, Ultrasound, Endoscopy and Medical Physics, as well as an emergency room and a chapel. Ambulances spawn frequently on the hospital's parking lot. There are two helipads on the roof, which can be accessed by stairs, and one or two Air Ambulances can also spawn there, though this is erratic and it may take several visits to see one (until a helipad is purchased and Trevor obtains a helicopter, this is likely to be the main location for players to obtain a helicopter in the early parts of the game for collection challenges, etc.). Due to its central location, this is the place where players will likely obtain helicopters for use in collection challenges, etc. until they have progressed far enough into the game to have their own helicopters.
Due to its location in a heavily gang populated area, the hospital is presumably quite busy and is always receiving patients (ambulances will often be seen leaving the hospital on calls). The medical center has gained negative criticism for its bad doctors and healthcare in the TV commercials of the Mount Zonah Medical Center.
- One of the 50 Spaceship parts can be found on the roof.
- In GTA Online, the player can find the Annihilator and the Cargobob on the helipad after achieving a certain rank.
- Gang members such as those from the Varrios Los Aztecas and Los Santos Vagos will sometimes spawn on the sidewalks behind the hospital.
