September 18, 2009 11:19:19 PM PDT
Los Angeles county political and business leaders are hoping that the University of California will play a role in reopening the Martin Luther King Junior Hospital.They are asking UC's governing board to consider becoming a partner in the hospital's rebirth by 2012.

The hospital closed two years ago after failing a federal inspection.

Some UC regents have expressed support for the partnership.

However, some are concerned about making a large financial commitment, while the US system faces its own budget problems.
