Supervisor Ridley-Thomas held a public information meeting last Wednesday about the proposed plans to develop a new state-of-the-art Martin Luther King, Jr. Medical Center Campus. The proposed project will revitalize the site of the existing hospital and bring much-needed medical services to the Second District and the County of Los Angeles.
The proposed project site is the existing 38-acre Martin Luther King, Jr. Medical Center Campus, located at 12021 Wilmington Avenue in the unincorporated area of Willowbrook, County of Los Angeles, California.
The project will be implemented in two phases, or tiers. Tier I involves the development of a new Multi-Service Ambulatory Care Center (MACC) and the Ancillary Building. Tier II includes the development of: Emergency Room Expansion; MRI Modular Building; new Cooling Towers; and additional master planned mixed-use development, which may include the potential for medical offices, general offices, commercial and retail space, residential units, and other development in support of the campus.
In the video above, Yolanda Vera, Supervisor Ridley-Thomas’ Senior Deputy for Healthcare Services and Advocacy, gives a general overview of the plans for the MLK Hospital site.
