Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital opened its new facilities in South Los Angeles in 2015 through an innovative public/private partnership between several healthcare providers, the County of Los Angeles, and the University of California. Located in the heart of South Los Angeles, this private, nonprofit, and safety-net hospital is dedicated to providing the highest quality care to all those who need it, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. The hospital's comprehensive services include, but are not limited to, high caliber emergency services – the Hope Emergency Center saw over 113,000 patients in 2019 alone – as well as surgical, critical care, and labor and delivery units. Further, MLK Community Hospital operates three ongoing programs beyond the hospital walls to ensure the health of the South Los Angeles community: Know Your Basics, which offers free health screenings and health education; You Can, which brings students to the hospital and healthcare professionals to classrooms to introduce medical career pathways; and Recipe for Health, a food program for community members with diabetes.
