Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital
Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital (MLKCH) opened on July 6, 2015. The hospital serves about 1.35 million residents from all over South Los Angeles including Compton, Inglewood, Watts, Willowbrook and Lynwood. It will also create more than 1,800 jobs in the area with approximately 900 directly at the hospital.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital is one of the most modern hospitals in southern California with the highest quality doctors and nurses on staff, the most advanced and innovative healthcare technology, and the best medical equipment available today. This state-of-the-art hospital serves the community by providing inpatient primary care, basic emergency services, and health education and outreach services.
Our goal is to provide patient-centered care to improve the health of the community. We collaborate with other healthcare facilities and providers in and around the community to make available the services that are not offered in the hospital. All care is organized through the use of safe and secure electronic health records (EHR) so that every healthcare facility has immediate access to a patient’s complete medical history.
