Local Group Questions Plans for Huey Long Hospital

They’re trying to save Huey Long Hospital.  Now, one local group is questioning the latest plans for providing health insurance for the uninsured.

It looks as though there will be a public-private partnership between Cabrini and Rapides Regional.  That partnership would provide bed space, but out-patient cases will be handled by community clinics.

The group held a news conference Saturday afternoon in front of the hospital, which is due to close next year.
