BATON ROUGE- The one-time leader of the LSU public hospital system is heading to Dallas, to become chief executive officer of a public county hospital.

Fred Cerise says he accepted the job leading Dallas' Parkland Memorial Hospital.

Cerise headed LSU's charity hospital system, with 10 hospitals and related clinics, before Gov. Bobby Jindal's administration struck deals that turned over management of most facilities to outside companies.

The Jindal administration replaced Cerise with Frank Opelka in August 2012, after Cerise balked at the privatization plans.

Since his ouster as hospitals leader, Cerise has been an associate dean at LSU's School of Medicine in New Orleans.
