University of California to consider taking over troubled Los Angeles hospital

San Francisco Chronicle, June 12, 2008

The University of California is considering undertaking the monumental task of reopening Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital in Los Angeles, an inner-city public hospital that was largely shut down after years of negligence and patient deaths. The state's public university system met with administrators and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and agreed to consider a county proposal to open the facility. But University of California Provost Wyatt Hume said quality of care, financial, and legal issues must be considered before the school makes any decision regarding the takeover.
