UC approves partnership with Los Angeles County to reopen King medical facility

Los Angeles Times, November 20, 2009

In a unanimous vote, University of California regents approved a partnership with Los Angeles County that clears the way to reopen the Martin Luther King Jr. medical facility, possibly by 2013. The agreement creates a nonprofit entity to oversee the hospital and handle all hiring. Under the plan, the King hospital will be considerably smaller than it had been, 120 beds instead of 233. It will include an emergency room and three operating rooms but no trauma center.
