Los Angeles Times

State lawmakers approved a measure Wednesday to help finance operation of a new private hospital to serve residents of the South Los Angeles area, which has been without a hospital since the closing of Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital.

The Senate approved legislation that would guarantee that the new hospital in Willowbrook, south of Watts, would be reimbursed for Medi-Cal inpatient services at 60% of cost.
