Hospital district signs deal to buy eastern New Orleans hospital, health centers

New Orleans Times-Picayune, May 29, 2009

The Orleans Parish Hospital Service District has entered into an agreement to buy the former Methodist Hospital and other healthcare centers in eastern New Orleans from Universal Health Services, according to the Methodist Health System Foundation. If the purchase goes through, it would mark the first real progress toward the restoration of a full-service in eastern New Orleans, whose residents now have to drive as far as 30 minutes to get emergency care.
