Martin Luther King Jr. Hospital to be re-opened in South LA
UCLA Daily-Bruin

After riots damaged areas of South Los Angeles in 1992, Linda Griego was there to help rebuild. In more recent years, the 1975 UCLA alumna watched with alarm as unemployment rates rose along with the number of uninsured among the working poor. Then, three years ago, the area’s only hospital closed. “It really left the community in dire straits,” said Griego, who currently runs her own business management company and served as a trustee to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation for 12 years.
