Iris S. and Bert L. Wolstein Research Building (on Cornell Road), Auditorium
Redefining Healthcare for an Underserved Community

Dr. Elaine Batchlor, MD, MPH, is the chief executive officer of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital (MLKCH). MLKCH opened in 2015 to fill the gap in care that came about when the one public hospital in South Los Angeles closed in 2007 due to poor performance. The new MLKCH is a unique partnership between a private, not-for-profit organization and Los Angeles County, which built a new facility for the hospital and transferred operation and governance to private leadership. The hospital has since garnered accolades for its technology and been cited as an example of how a safety-net hospital can provide high-quality care to a population with some of the worst health indicators in the nation. Most recently, MLKCH is implementing a comprehensive approach to health, including the formation of a medical group to recruit physicians to a community with a historical deficit of quality providers and new collaborations to address social determinants of health.
