Louisiana parish considers hospital options
New Orleans Times-Picayune, April 7, 2008
Officials for St. Bernard Parish in Louisiana are weighing two opitions presented by nonprofit groups as the parish continues its quest to build a hospital to replace the one destroyed during Hurricane Katrina. One option is a 20-bed hospital that would be debt free but might not be large enough to meet the parish's needs. The other is a 60-bed hospital saddled with $60 million in loans.
