Future remains uncertain for Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital in Los Angeles
Los Angeles Times, August 18, 2008
It has been a year since the closure of emergency and inpatient services at Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital in Los Angeles, and L.A. county officials have acknowledged that they remain far from fulfilling their promise of restoring it to full operation. The University of California has so far been unable to overcome significant obstacles to accepting management of the South Los Angeles facility. The financing, governance and role of labor unions remain unresolved, and officials on both sides said they did not expect to know until the end of the year if a deal could be struck.
