LSU at odds with hospital manager over contracts
BATON ROUGE - LSU has rejected financial proposals from the manager of its Shreveport and Monroe hospitals that would govern the sharing of computer services, utilities and security.
University system health care adviser Jerry Phillips says the documents submitted by the Biomedical Research Foundation of Northwest Louisiana didn't meet the terms sought by LSU.
Though management of the north Louisiana hospitals shifted nearly a year ago, LSU and the research foundation have been unable to reach terms on various financial contract details.
A behind-the-scenes dispute over the contractual arrangements spilled into public view last month when LSU sent the research foundation a collection letter demanding payment for $25 million in outstanding debts.
