UC expected to partner with LA County in reopening Martin Luther King Jr. Hospital

Los Angeles Times, November 19, 2009

Members of the University of California Board of Regents meeting at UCLA said that they were cautiously optimistic that they would vote to partner with Los Angeles County to reopen Martin Luther King Jr. Hospital. Under the proposal, the county and the University of California would create a nonprofit entity to run the hospital, with the university providing physician services and medical oversight. The agreement specifies that the hospital would have 120 beds, an emergency room, three operating rooms, and no trauma center.
