Recently, together with Captain Natalie Cortez and LAPD"s Mission Community Police Station, the Los Angeles Fire Department and the California Highway Patrol West Valley, we honored our healthcare heroes at our local hospitals, including Kaiser Permanente Panorama City Medical Center and Mission Community Hospital.
COVID-19 is now the No. 1 cause of death in Los Angeles County - a tragedy affecting over 1,100 Angelenos and their families. For many of the victims, the last people they see are our nurses and doctors and hospital staff. We thank them for their dedication, their bravery and mostly, for their humanity. History, and the City of Los Angeles, will remember them always.
