Opinion: Former LSU hospital chief knew and said too much
Knowing the truth about the plight of the LSU Health System and being willing to speak out about it set Dr. Fred Cerise free from his position as head of the 10-hospital system. Cerise joined a growing list of administrators who have been fired after not following the party line drawn by Gov. Bobby Jindal. Because Cerise was not directly a Jindal administration official, the governor could not fire him. He worked for the LSU Board of Supervisors and William Jenkins, interim system president and interim chancellor of the flagship campus in Baton Rouge. But the governor has appointed almost every member of that board.
