St. Bernard asks Louisiana for hospital funds
The St. Bernard Parish Council is asking the Louisiana Legislature for an additional $10 million to build a new hospital in a parish that has had no fully operational medical facility since Hurricane Katrina. Cobbling together enough money to build an estimated $60 million hospital has been the primary challenge for parish officials in the three years since Chalmette Medical Center was destroyed. The responsibility now lies with St. Bernard's legislative delegation to lobby for hospital money against competing project requests throughout the state.
