A second Los Angeles hospital could close

Los Angeles Times, February 13, 2008
The federal government has cited Harbor-UCLA Medical Center for placing its emergency patients in "immediate jeopardy" because of overcrowding and long waits. The citation comes just six months after Los Angeles County closed all but the outpatient clinics and urgent care center at Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital. Harbor-UCLA saw 82,300 emergency patients in the last year, and the average wait was 12.2 hours. Approximately 16 percent of the ER patients left without being seen.
