In a move intended to pressure University of California leaders, Los Angeles County supervisors unanimously approved a plan Tuesday to ask the university's regents to commit to partnering with the county to reopen the long-troubled Martin Luther King Jr. hospital by 2012. The vote authorizes the county's chief executive, William T Fujioka, to move beyond closed-door negotiations and take the county's proposal to the UC Board of Regents meeting next month. The Willowbrook facility, formerly known as King-Drew Medical Center and King-Harbor Hospital, closed to inpatient services two years ago and since has operated as an outpatient clinic.

In the June 24 article, "Auditors Fault Top Doctor at Hospital," Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina is quoted as saying of Martin Luther King Jr./Drew Medical Center, "I personally have given up on this hospital." The supervisor's comment is profoundly disturbing and offensive. Has Molina given up on the patients who depend on the hospital as well? I work as a nursing attendant at the hospital, and can state that the vast majority of my co-workers are wholeheartedly committed to the hospital and its patients.
