Abstract (Summary)

Light of Hope (LOH), LLC intends to enter the recuperative care market by offering post-acute medical care for homeless patients who have been deemed not ill enough to be in a hospital and have been discharged, but are too ill/frail to recover on the streets from their physical illness or injury. Recuperative care programs have demonstrated the ability to reduce costly hospital stays and emergency room visits, which are often funded by taxpayers, and thusly give hospitals a place to safely release homeless patients, rather than the alternative of leaving them on the streets. According to some estimates, recuperative care can lead to yearly savings of up to $1.5 million for area hospitals. LOH will be a for-profit, community-based stand-alone recuperative care center with a 50 bed capacity, located in northwest Compton, California, with the purpose to serve this growing need of the homeless population in Los Angeles County.
