Los Angeles hospital's takeover candidate raises doubts
Los Angeles Times, April 7, 2008
Health experts and community leaders have criticized news that the 184-bed Pacific Hospital of Long Beach, CA, is the prime candidate for the contract to reopen Martin Luther King-Harbor Hospital in Los Angeles. The trend signals possible hurdles to reestablish the hospital for Los Angeles County's most underserved communities. Critics say Pacific is simply too small and untested in the task of running such a complicated institution as a large public hospital, and the attempt is likely to fail.
