St. Bernard Parish may oust hospital board
The St. Bernard Parish Council will conduct a special meeting to consider disbanding the five-member hospital board it created more than a year ago and appointing replacements. The measure is the third time since October that the council has proposed a shakeup involving the parish's Hospital Service District Board, tasked by the previous council with building St. Bernard's first post-Hurricane Katrina hospital. Councilman Wayne Landry said the council's proposal comes after a series of problems with the board during the past year, including potential conflicts of interest and issues with properly advertising contracts.
