Marrero, LA-based hospital’s board shifts course
New Orleans Times-Picayune, June 24, 2008
Directors of the Marrero, LA-based West Jefferson Medical Center pulled back the veil on their decision-making after the board drew criticism from several Jefferson Parish Council members for conducting the bulk of its meetings behind closed doors. The group conducted eight out of 21 agenda items in public view at its most recent meeting, although it still saved the bulk of the board's business for a closed session. The Marrero hospital board has gradually relented on a philosophy of restricting access that it tested earlier this year.
