MLK Master Plan Meeting, October 26, 2011

The third community meeting for the MLK Medical Center Master Plan took place on October 25, 2011 at MLK. The County has invested nearly $3 Million to develop a long-term comprehensive master plan to more strategically use campus to provide high quality patient health care services, research, teaching and economic development opportunities. The master planning process provides an opportunity to think critically about the needs of patients, medical staff, community members and businesses and develop a plan for a new center that is reflective of those needs.

Over 100 community members participated in the meeting focused on the review of four distinct draft community models for the master plan. Each community model is structured differently to meet the critical needs that have been identified by the community in previous meetings. Each model provides opportunities for expansion of medical services, economic opportunities, recreational and community space, and education and research. After a presentation by master planning firm, Gensler, community members were invited to visit stations around the room and provide feedback about how they would feel using each space. The presentation and materials are available below:
