Burlingame, CA — Since the new Mills-Peninsula Health Services Medical Center opened in May 2011, the old hospital has remained largely quiet while preparations for demolition have been underway.
On Friday, October 28, the old eight-story medical center, located on Trousdale Avenue beside the new Burlingame hospital, was anything but quiet and empty. The Central San Mateo County Training Division & San Mateo County South Zone Training, in cooperation with Mills-Peninsula Health Services, hosted more than 20 fire companies from seven cities, each with multiple engines and trucks.
