Jindal: LSU needs more detailed plan on hospital

New Orleans Times Picayune, June 2, 2009

Louisiana State University System officials must craft a more detailed business plan for the proposed state medical complex slated to be built in New Orleans as a replacement of the old Charity Hospital, Gov. Bobby Jindal said. The governor said he remains a supporter of the proposal for a 424-bed academic medical complex in New Orleans. His comments come in the context of a legislative session that includes debates over the hospital's governance and a bill that could slow the state's acquisition of land for the facility.
