A majority of Los Angeles County supervisors said Friday that they are ready to vote next week to begin the process of closing Martin Luther King Jr.Harbor Hospital.
Faced with a threat from California regulators to pull the hospital’s license, Supervisors Zev Yaroslavsky, Gloria Molina and Mike Antonovich indicated that they wanted to act before the county’s hand was forced.
That would enable them to put in place an orderly plan to protect the South Los Angeles patients who depend on King-Harbor for their care, they said.
