Tenet to let Louisiana hospital go

New Orleans Times Picayune, June 8, 2009

Tenet Healthcare Corp. will not renew its lease for NorthShore Regional Medical Center in Slidell—its last remaining hospital in Louisiana—when it expires next May. "It was strictly about looking at Tenet's strategic business goals, looking at how our different facilities align with our strategy," said Emily Kinney, a spokesperson for Dallas-based Tenet. "We're trying to grow our in-patient services in our stronger markets."
