Louisiana bill lets doctors stay on hospital panel
New Orleans Times-Picayune, June 25, 2008
A bill passed by the Louisiana Senate will allow two doctors to remain on St. Bernard Parish's hospital commission while also being employed by the Franciscan Mission. The Mission is competing with Ochsner to operate a still-to-be-built hospital in the parish. However, while the doctors can serve on the St. Bernard Hospital Service District Commission, they will not be allowed to vote on any issue involving the Franciscan group. The bill now heads to Gov. Bobby Jindal.
