Louisiana governor says agreement on University Health hospitals is close
"We are getting really close," Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said of a deal under which Ochsner Health System would manage the University Health hospitals in Shreveport and Monroe. "We are in the final stages of hammering out a letter of intent. I think what's going to happen soon is the LSU president, once things are worked out, will be asked to sign a letter of intent on behalf of LSU."
