Hubert Humphrey Urgent Care Center in South Los Angeles will soon be receiving an upgrade and increasing its capacity to serve the public. The Board of Supervisors has allocated approximately $4 million to remodel the 6,000-square-foot facility.

The action by the board authorizes J.R. Abbot Construction to design and construct a new 2,000-square-foot waiting room, seven new exam rooms, add 50 additional parking spaces, renovate the security office and upgrade the fire alarm system throughout the facility.

“This facility is located approximately four miles from the Martin Luther King Jr. Medical Center Campus,” said Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas. “It is my goal to see that constituents have access top-quality medical care right in their own community.”
