Hope Emergency Center Dedication

It’s official!

On June 2, 2017, we dedicated our Hope Emergency Center. Many steadfast champions, ever committed to the mission of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital, attended this exciting milestone—the first naming dedication since we opened our doors. Together, we proudly celebrated the ways we are keeping our promise of health, access, and equity to South Los Angeles.

Thank you to everyone who joins us in ‘Sharing Hope’!
