VIDEO: Harbor-UCLA Emergency Room Groundbreaking Ceremony

Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas today broke ground on the long-awaited $322.6 million Harbor-UCLA Medical Center’s Surgery/Emergency Replacement Project, launching the first of several health care-related mega projects in the Second District approved last year by the Board of Supervisors.

Supervisor Ridley-Thomas said during the groundbreaking ceremony that the Harbor-UCLA project brings to fruition a conversation that began in 1990 and, together with the new Martin Luther King, Jr., Hospital, will fortify the public health care infrastructure in the Second District.

The $350 million MLK project will create 8,200 jobs, according to a job formula used by the Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation. Supervisor Ridley-Thomas said the Harbor-UCLA project will translate into a similar amount of jobs.
