Los Angeles County to keep healthcare clinics open--for now
Los Angeles Times, February 20, 2008

Although healthcare advocates for the poor applauded, some supervisors questioned whether the proposal would hurt the indigent and uninsured people who depend on the county for their healthcare and warned that private clinics might not have the ability to treat displaced patients.
