Plan to reopen King hospital in Los Angeles by 2012 faces big hurdles
Los Angeles County's new plan to reopen Martin Luther King Jr. Hospital was met with cheers in South Los Angeles, but the ambitious timetable will be difficult to meet. The county vows to reopen the facility in three years—an undertaking that would involve erecting two new buildings, rehabbing an existing medical building, and hiring doctors and nurses. The county also needs to find hundreds of millions of dollars to pay for it, and some officials worry they might not meet the 2012 target.
