Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center’s parent company may be out as the manager of New Orleans’ new community hospital, according to the Times-Picayune.
The Orleans Parish Hospital Service District A Board, a state-chartered entity, is seeking potential partners to help finance and potentially run the hospital in eastern New Orleans, the Picayune reports. The move could supersede existing plans for Baton Rouge-based Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System to run the hospital.
The hospital board is in charge of redeveloping the Methodist Hospital campus. The new facility is a centerpiece of New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s health care agenda, the story says.
