St. Bernard Parish hospital board delays decision
The public board tasked with overseeing construction of St. Bernard Parish's first post-Katrina hospital held off on considering an offer from the Parish Council to take over the project. Hospital Service District Chairman Daniel Dysart said the five-member board wants to discuss the intent of the council's resolution, which was passed January 20. The wording in the council's resolution stated that the council "has at its disposal the full resources of the parish" and that the hospital board has limited or no resources at their disposal to execute the construction of a hospital. "My understanding was that this resolution was passed as an offer of help to the HSD," Dysart said. "We just want to talk about it and see where it's coming from."
