Three recent graduates of the UCLA Clinical Scholars program were instrumental in the planning and organization for the re-opening of the Martin Luther King (MLK) Jr. Community Hospital in South Los Angeles. They are 3 of the main clinical leaders who have planned and organized care delivery in key areas. Along with Carol Mangione (UCLA CSP co-director), they recently attended a special celebration for the opening of the new MLK Community Hospital. Mendell Briggs-Malonson (UCLA CSP 09-11), Chief Medical Officer and ER physician and the main architect of the electronic medical records; Stan Frencher (UCLA CSP 08-10), Chief Medical Officer for Surgical Services and Urologist, singlehandedly designed the surgical services and operating room; and Efrain Talamantes (UCLA CSP 12-14), Chief Medical Officer for the Hospitalists (the doctors who will deliver 90% of inpatient care) are all playing key leadership roles that are critical in making this new hospital a success. MLK hospital closed in 2007 and left this area of Los Angeles with the poorest health on virtually all indicators even worse off, so it is an important milestone to see this new state-of-the-art facility open under the careful leadership of Clinical Scholars alumni.
