Two councilmen reveal choice for who should run JP hospitals


Jefferson, La. - Two Jefferson Parish council members reveal their choice for who should run both East and West Jefferson Hospitals.

Jefferson Parish council chairman Chris Roberts and councilman-at-large Elton Lagasse both say they are in favor of Louisiana Children's Medical Center.

They say Children's provides the best solution to keep the hospitals under the governance of a community based organization.

Board members met Monday to discuss all the options.

The other two contenders include the Ochsner Health System which promises to create at least 500 new jobs, and Nashville based HCA which offered to spend millions in improvements.
