Holly J. Mitchell knows that health and medical care can be the most expensive services working families pay for in the 54th Assembly District. She knows that are large percentage of working families are presently priced out of the health insurance market, at a time when insurance companies are raising healthcare premiums for many families and small businesses.
*Holly will work with L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas as he finalizes state and local plans to open a new, privately operated Martin Luther King Hospital in Southeast L.A. County. New MLK Hospital will deliver quality health care and emergency medical services to millions of county residents, including families in Culver City and Los Angeles. New MLK Hospital will relieve the enormous strain on our network of private hospitals and urgent care facilities, and create thousands of new jobs.
*Holly supports President Barack Obama's national health reform plan to provide health coverage for 30 million Americans and provide affordable medical care to working families who often forego preventative health and routine medical care because they the lack the money to pay for it.
