ridleythomas copyToday, there is no greater champion for health care in South Los Angeles than Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas.

While Ridley-Thomas has promoted the Second District’s interests on a variety of fronts, including transportation, job creation, retention and local hiring, he has made the most notable strides in health care. He has been a tireless advocate and friend for CDU. Through his advocacy, many health clinics in the area are funded through public-private partnerships and serving the community. And in 2015, Ridley-Thomas hosted the grand opening of the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital, a state-of-the-art facility committed to providing quality and compassionate care. At the ribbon-cutting he said, “This marks the beginning of a new era in healthcare delivery in the Willowbrook community and beyond.”
