The Los Angeles County Health Crisis Task Force unveiled a plan Saturday that would keep open major hospitals, including County-USC Medical Center, by closing at least 30 walk-in health centers and clinics. Other key elements of the plan, which will be released publicly Monday and presented to the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, are a proposal to sell Rancho Los Amigos Medical Center, a nationally acclaimed rehabilitative hospital, and reduce the number of county health administrators by half.
