Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center, which is staffed by about 800 physicians and twice as many nurses, is a 437-bed hospital that relies on 7 sewage ejection pits to collect waste from the hospital complex. These sewage ejection pits were responsible for pumping the waste material out of the buildings and into the municipal sewer system.
