King Hospital Rises from the Dead

Hosted by

In the aftermath of the Watts riots of 1965, the Martin Luther King Hospital opened in South Central LA.  But over the years, the level of healthcare deteriorated to the point where official reports called it dangerous. In August, 2007, the hospital finally shut down. Yesterday a proposal was made to re-open under the joint control of LA County and UCLA, as we hear from Jim Lott, executive vice president of the Association of Southern California Hospitals.
