White Memorial is a Blessing

Last week I toured the new wing of the White Memorial Medical Center in Boyle Heights. It was truly gratifying to witness firsthand the great work and medical services provided by our community hospital. It is truly a blessing and a lifeline to many Eastside residents. Not too long ago, I also attended the grand opening of the Rainbow Children's Center for Healthy Growth. This center has been funded in part by the City of Los Angeles, and ensures that children suffering from cleft palate deformities are provided the medical attention they deserve. The smiles I saw on the faces of the children who had undergone the life-changing surgery were proof enough that this is a program worth having. Thanks White Memorial for all you do for our community.
