Los Angeles Times

Supervisor Gloria Molina on Tuesday defended Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center against allegations made by an emergency room patient who last week filed a complaint about lengthy waits, privacy violations and other issues at the Boyle Heights hospital. Molina’s comments came as county health officials told the Board of Supervisors they expect the county Department of Health Services to face a $204.2-million deficit for the current fiscal year that ends on June 30, and a $599.5-million deficit for the next fiscal year.
