Gov. Bobby Jindal has picked four nominees to the governing board for a new $1.2 billion public
teaching hospital for New Orleans, the Governor's Office announced Tuesday.

The selections are the first for the 11-member board. The nominations will have to be approved by the LSU Board of Supervisors because the university is helping to finance the hospital construction.

Jindal's selections were his former executive counsel, Tim Barfield, of Baton Rouge; shipbuilder Donald "Boysie" Bollinger, of Lockport; orthopedic doctor Christopher Rich, of Alexandria; and
New Orleans businessman David Voelker, who is chairman of the Louisiana Recovery Authority.

The choices were recommended by Jindal's health secretary and his top budget adviser, according to the Governor's Office.
