FROM THIS EPISODE

Los Angeles supervisors are closing the county's King-Harbor Hospital after its failure to pass a crucial inspection caused the loss of $200 million in federal dollars. Re-opening with a private operator could take more than a year. What does that mean for nearby hospitals that will take up the slack?

Main Topic Fallout from the Impending Closure of King-Harbor 18 MIN, 41 SEC

LA Supervisors met behind closed doors today to draw up requirements for a private operator to take over the County's King-Harbor Hospital. Some $200 million in federal money was lost after inspectors found dozens of errors and failures during a final inspection two weeks ago. The Emergency Room was closed Friday, and outpatient clinics and urgent care will soon be all that's left.  The Supervisors promised up to $16.3 million to nearby private hospitals and doctors braced for new patients from the area served by King-Harbor.
