Martin Luther King Jr. Multi-Service Ambulatory Care Center

General Clinic | Los Angeles, United States of America

Hospital description

Martin Luther King, Jr. Multi-Service Ambulatory Care Center is a specialist service that is part of the Los Angeles Department of Health Services. It is located in the southwest area of the county and belongs to the corresponding medical network.

The facility offers a Multi-Service Ambulatory Care Centre, including an Urgent Care Centre which treats patients with non life-threatening medical problems. It also has approximately 70 specialty outpatient clinics ranging in specialties from general medical care and physiotherapy to HIV/AIDS and neurology, though these only operate during week days.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Ambulatory Care Center was originally established to answer the demand within the local community, following on from the 1965 Watts Civil Unrest/Riots. The commission that was established to investigate the causes of the riots reported that a lack of access to adequate healthcare was one of the contributing factors to the unrest. The Medical Center was then established the following year to counter this cause of unrest. The task force charged with the development of this programme worked on a concept of providing a full-service community teaching hospital operated by the County in conjunction with the Drew Medical Society, USC and UCLA. The result is the current MLK/DMC service.
