Charity Hospital venue disputed in Louisiana

New Orleans Times-Picayune, May 6, 2009
Charity Hospital in New Orleans, formerly the city's largest healthcare provider for the uninsured, closed only because of the devastation left by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, attorneys for its managers told the Louisiana Supreme Court. The Supreme Court heard oral arguments in an Orleans Parish Civil District lawsuit filed in January 2008 that asks the courts to order Larry Hollier, chancellor of LSU Health Sciences Center, to reopen the Tulane Avenue hospital that long served poor families that couldn't secure healthcare elsewhere.
