LCMC Health signs deal to run New Orleans East Hospital

The New Orleans Advocate, April 10, 2014

In addition to receiving the go-ahead Wednesday from the Jefferson Parish Council to operate West Jefferson Medical Center, LCMC Health formalized its agreement this week to take on the operation of the New Orleans East Hospital, now under construction. In a cooperative endeavor agreement with the city signed Monday, LCMC — formerly Louisiana Children's Medical Center — agreed to replace the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System as the 80-bed hospital's operator. The agreement runs for 15 years, with an option for two five-year renewals.
