Los Angeles Times, May 12, 2008
The promise to reopen Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Medical Center by February 2009 has given way to some officials predicting that it could be years before Los Angeles hospital is resurrected. Los Angeles County is facing broad challenges in its health services department that are some of the most difficult this decade, and the hospital industry across Southern California is facing economic difficulties. King has been also been troubled for years by problems with patient care, finally prompting the federal government to pull its funding and force its closure last summer.
