St. Bernard Parish wants to take on hospital

New Orleans Times-Picayune, January 21, 2009
The St. Bernard Parish Council has officially offered to take over the task of building the parish's first post-Katrina hospital from the five-member public board appointed in late 2007 to oversee the project. Councilman Wayne J. Landry, the council's liaison on the hospital issue, said the move should not be viewed as council-board infighting but as a signal that the council and the parish are willing to come forward with the expertise needed to fast-track the project.
