Hospitals Geared to Serve Hispanics

June 27, 1985

We salute the Los Angeles Times for their coverage of the health services for the Hispanic community offered by Charter Medical Corp. (Southeast/Long Beach sections, June 20).

The Times noted that there is a growing need for health-care services geared toward the Spanish-speaking community.

The article focused on the Servicios de Salud program at Charter Suburban Hospital in Paramount when, in actuality, the program is a joint venture between two Charter facilities, the other being Charter Community Hospital in Hawaiian Gardens.

We feel it is important that the Spanish-speaking population in both hospital communities be aware of the comprehensive services being offered.
