Louisiana hospitals will get financial lifeline

New Orleans Times-Picayune, January 7, 2009

Louisiana healthcare providers are slated to get nearly $130 million in federal Social Services Block Grant financing, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Part of that money will go to shore up healthcare providers that suffered losses because of Hurricanes Gustav and Ike in 2008, while some will be used to help hospitals and other institutions still suffering the effects of Hurricane Katrina.
