Martin Luther King Hospital Reopens

Hosted by  • 

King/Drew Medical Center was hailed as a civil rights victory for South Los Angeles when it opened in 1972. But over the years, its standard of care declined so badly it came to be known as "Killer King."  Today, it re-opened as the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital.
