My position is that Charity may very well need to be torn down or significantly remodeled, in the near future. However, in the near term people must be provided with effective and efficient medical services.
Our people black, white, hispanic, asian, cajun, creole, Democrat, Republican, and Independent need medical services. The question is why as a state can we not buckle down and do what is needed now, then create a vision going foreward.
Remember no matter what happens a new hospital is a minimum of 3 to 5 years a way. This is a near term problem.
