Feds approve OLOL-EKL financing
BATON ROUGE - Federal health officials have signed off on two of the four financial commitments that support the public-private partnership between LSU and Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center.
The approvals guarantee extra Medicaid funding for inpatient care of the poor and uninsured treated at Our Lady of the Lake.
The funding is more than what other area hospitals receive.
The Lake became home for LSU's medical education program and in-patient care that had been delivered at the public Earl K. Long Medical Center in north Baton Rouge.
