This hospital re-opening signifies a new beginning for the renamed Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital, which was closed in 2007, leaving a large community without access to local healthcare services. The Inpatient Tower renovation establishes this facility as a new, state of the art hospital within the LA County Department of Public Health system providing.

The 38-acre campus redevelopment encompasses three main components. The first is reinstatement of the hospital, a five-story inpatient tower for 120 beds, a new emergency department, surgery, diagnostic and treatment services, and support functions. The second component was to upgrade the existing Central Plant into a 40,000 SF facility that will support sustainable operations. Finally, a new Ancillary-Service Building was added that will offer dining, offices, and new front entrance to the Medical Center.

The fast-track Design Build project was completed using an incremental permitting approach, in which OSHPD worked directly in the field with the contractor, architect and engineering team. The project won a 2012 AIA Team Excellence Award, and a 2014 Los Angeles Business Journal Top Commercial Real Estate Award
