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.
