Council delays Louisiana hospital decision
The St. Bernard Parish Council has delayed a decision on shifting more than $13 million of federal money toward construction of a new hospital in the Louisiana parish, amid concerns that the money would slight other parish development projects. The hospital debate added to months of wrangling between the council and a public board appointed to oversee financing and construction of a hospital. St. Bernard has been without a hospital since Hurricane Katrina destroyed Chalmette Medical Center.
