University of California regents concerned about finances for Martin Luther King Jr. Hospital
University of California regents have expressed support and financial trepidation about a proposal that the university play a key role in reopening Martin Luther King Jr. Hospital near Watts in 2012. Several regents said they want ironclad assurances from Los Angeles County supervisors and state officials that UC would not be held responsible for any costs or liabilities for what is expected to be a 120-bed facility with an emergency room. The hospital, which once had 233 beds, was shut down in August 2007 after repeated failures in patient care.
