Louisiana suggests making hospital independent of LSU
New Orleans Times Picayune, June 30, 2009
Louisiana Health Secretary Alan Levine, speaking after the Louisiana State University System Board of Supervisors rejected a teaching hospital deal he helped negotiate, floated the idea of a medical center that is not legally affiliated with the school at all. Though not an official proposal, it could be considered by Gov. Bobby Jindal's administration if LSU and Tulane University cannot agree on how to run the proposed $1.2 billion teaching hospital slated for construction in New Orleans, Levine said.
