Credit analyst says cuts in LSU system to change who gets patients

The Advocate, February 2, 2012
Jindal administration cuts to the LSU hospital system will have a negative financial impact on private hospitals in Baton Rouge, Lafayette and elsewhere because they would get more indigent patients, according to a new Moody's Weekly Credit Outlook report. Louisiana's health chief disputed Moody's conclusion. "It doesn't look like they have done a lot of their homework," state Department of Health and Hospitals Secretary Bruce Greenstein said Monday.
