Plan could lead to reopening of King hospital in Los Angeles

Los Angeles Times, March 12, 2009

Martin Luther King Jr. Hospital in Los Angeles would reopen in three years with an emergency room and inpatient services under a tentative agreement that would substantially improve access to care in one of the most underserved areas of the nation, according to officials. Under the plan, worked out in negotiations among Los Angeles County officials, the University of California and representatives of the governor, the hospital would be operated by a new nonprofit entity governed by a board equally controlled by UC and the county.
