LSU chief medical officer to resign
Dr. Michael Kaiser will step down from his $350,000-a-year job as chief of the LSU Health Care Services Division effective Aug. 30. Kaiser stepped into the job last fall as the Jindal administration worked toward privatization of six of the seven charity hospitals in south Louisiana under the umbrella of the LSU Health Care Services Division, called HCSD. In that role, Kaiser presided over the layoff of thousands of state employees who worked at LSU hospitals in Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Lafayette, Houma and Lake Charles. Bogalusa hospital employee layoffs are next.
