University of California willing to discuss operating King-Harbor hospital
The University of California is prepared to discuss reopening Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital in Los Angeles as its sole operator, according to UC Provost Wyatt "Rory" Hume. Hume added, however, that the university was proceeding with extraordinary caution and continued to prefer a scenario in which the university would play only academic and clinical roles at the hospital, while a third party acted as administrator. The university's ability to take over King entirely could also be derailed by insufficient funds to operate a hospital at which most of its patients have been uninsured, Hume added.
