St. Bernard Parish hospital board finalizes location for construction of hospital

New Orleans Times Picayune, March 15, 2010
After a year of political wrangling and debate over where to build a new hospital in New Orleans' St. Bernard Parish, the parish's hospital board formally inked a deal with a local non-profit group to use a donated piece of land. The Arlene and Joseph Meraux Charitable Foundation had offered up the 11.5-acre piece of land in January 2009 for free. But some hospital board members and Parish Councilmen had issues with specific language about who would have control over the type of services the hospital could offer.
