Los Angeles Times Concludes Series on King/Drew With Interviews of County Supervisors, Health Care Experts
As part of its series about Martin Luther King Jr./Drew Medical Center, the Los Angeles Times on Thursday featured excerpts of interviews with members of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. The Times piece included board members' comments on steps taken to "fix the hospital's problems," possible changes to worker discipline rules and the potential circumstances that would lead the county to close King/Drew (Landsberg, Los Angeles Times, 12/23).
The Times on Thursday also published an epilogue to the five-part series, in which a panel of two dozen health care experts said King/Drew should close temporarily to "regroup," and the board should relinquish its control of the facility to an independent board or health care professional (Weber et al., Los Angeles Times, 12/23).This is part of the California Healthline Daily Edition, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
