New South L.A. hospital to cost $32 million more than expected

Los Angeles Times, August 21, 2013
The long-awaited reopening of a hospital in South Los Angeles will cost $32 million more than anticipated due to "unforeseen site conditions" and may not be able to accept patients until early 2015, according to Los Angeles County officials. The new spending, expected to be approved Tuesday by the county Board of Supervisors, brings the total price tag of the project to $284.4 million, nearly $50 million more than originally budgeted for the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital. None of the five board members responded to requests for comment.
