Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital

The new Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital (MLKCH) is preparing to open its doors in South Los Angeles in early 2015. Located in the Second District of the County of Los Angeles, the hospital is a priority project for Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas.

The hospital is expected to serve 1.35 million residents from all over South Los Angeles including Compton, Inglewood, Watts-Willowbroook and Lynwood.

It will also create more than 1,800 jobs in the area with approximately 900 directly at the hospital.
