St. Bernard Parish ponders two sites for hospital

New Orleans Times-Picayune, January 13, 2009

With the financing coming together for St. Bernard Parish's first post-Hurricane Katrina hospital, officials are now considering the question of where to build it. Two sites have emerged as possibilities: a tract across from the parish government complex, owned by a local nonprofit group, and the Village Square site in Chalmette, LA, that will soon be bought by a private investor. The public board assigned to build the hospital is expected to choose a site in January, a decision that will affect who has control over the hospital's expansion and any future development nearby.
