Leaders of L.A. Care Health Plan, one of the country’s largest public health plans, voted this week to donate $500,000 to the nonprofit that will run the new Martin Luther King Jr. hospital in Willowbrook scheduled to open in 2012.

“King Drew was a central component of the healthcare delivery system in South Los Angeles. It has been missed, and we are very pleased to be able to provide the initial critical support needed to help the new MLK hospital get on its feet,” said Howard Kahn, the health plan’s CEO.
