Louisiana Gov. Jindal Wants De-Politicizing Of Med Center In New Orleans
 

Bobby Jindal said the future course and size of the University Medical Center—an issue which has caused a difference of opinion between U.S. Senator David Vitter and the Governor-- will be discussed at an upcoming meeting of the Board of Directors and should be based upon independent business analysis and not politics.   
 

Jindal stressed that the University Medical Center will help the economy and the state’s healthcare and would be a state of the art hospital, teaching and research facility center in competition with those in other cities. 

Recently, Vitter, also a Republican said the expansion would be too expensive.

Jindal said the project would be a two billion dollar project and that it has to be governed by an independent study and his advice should be based upon an independent business analysis, not politics.

Jindal said his advice would be to build the hospital that would be scalable for growth.

 

The governor said the board will be meeting in early May to consider all of the studies.
