LOS ANGELES: Eastside, San Gabriel Valley To Benefit
Los Angeles' Eastside and the San Gabriel Valley are experiencing a medical and economic "boon," thanks to recent developments that will pump money into the region, a Los Angeles Times editorial notes. The proposed construction of a County-USC Medical Center "satellite hospital in the eastern San Gabriel Valley" will serve low income people who must currently travel to East Los Angeles for care. The W.M. Keck Foundations's $110 million gift to the USC School of Medicine, announced Thursday, will "boost it to the top tier with UCLA, Stanford and Harvard medical schools." Both developments will "improve medical care for poor and paying patients alike" and boost infrastructure and jobs "in an area that needs both" (7/30).This is part of the California Healthline Daily Edition, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
