Methodist Hospital redevelopment board seeks private partners
The public governing board charged with redeveloping the Methodist Hospital campus into a community hospital for eastern New Orleans is looking for private partners who could help finance and potentially operate the facility targeted for a fall 2013 opening. The Orleans Parish Hospital Service District A Board, a state-chartered entity, voted without dissent Tuesday to solicit potential partners in a scheme that could supersede existing plans for the Baton Rouge-based Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System to run the new hospital that has become a centerpiece of Mayor Mitch Landrieu's health care agenda. Separately, the board hired New Orleans attorney Ernest Legier as the district's executive director. Gov. Bobby Jindal confirmed his support for more than $8 million in state capital financing support for the project, which is projected to exceed $100 million.
