Interim LSU hospital to cut jobs

New Orleans Times-Picayune, April 16, 2009
The Interim LSU Public Hospital in New Orleans is vastly overstaffed compared with its national peers and is planning to shed 300 workers next year as part of $24 million in budget cuts being contemplated by Gov. Bobby Jindal and the Legislature, officials said. The cuts mean the likely closure of a dental clinic, reductions in cancer screenings, changes in residency programs, and reductions in pay for some faculty doctors, said Fred Cerise, MD, who oversees healthcare operations for the Louisiana State University System.
