LSU outlines grievances about hospitals' management
MONROE - In a 10-page breach notice, LSU outlines three primary claims of why it believes Biomedical Research Foundation has failed to live up to its contract responsibilities as the operator of public hospitals in Shreveport and Monroe.
The three primary claims from LSU against the foundation include: failure to work collaboratively with LSU; failure to support and promote LSU Health Science Center-Shreveport's academic mission and reputation; and failure to establish a sustainable and competitive business model.
Biomedical Research Foundation Chairman Steve Skrivanos tells The News-Star the foundation will response to LSU's claims within a week.
The foundation earned the contract to operate the northern Louisiana hospitals in 2013 as part of Bobby Jindal's privatization of the state's charity hospital system.
