Hearing on control of LSU hospitals to be held next month
BATON ROUGE - It will be next month before it's determined who will control University Health hospitals in Shreveport and Monroe.
A hearing in state court in Baton Rouge had been scheduled for this week but was moved to Nov. 4-5.
The News-Star reports it's the first hearing in a lawsuit filed by LSU asking that Biomedical Research Foundation of Northwest Louisiana be removed as the former charity hospitals' operator.
BRF secured the contract to operate northern Louisiana's two safety-net hospitals in 2013 as part of Gov. Bobby Jindal's plan to privatize the state's charity hospital system.
LSU formally served a breach of contract notice to BRF last month, demanding the foundation withdraw as the operator of University Health.
BRF has asked that LSU's lawsuit be dismissed.
