The LSU Health Science System has announced $329 million in new cuts to offset federal cuts to the state’s Medicaid budget. System spokesperson Dr. Fred Cerise says the board gave them some specific guidelines. “They said that they didn’t want to close any training programs, so you’ll see where the cuts are concentrated more heavily on those hospitals where we don’t have training,“ says Dr. Cerise. Those hospitals, according to Dr. Cerise, are W.O. Moss Regional Medical Center in Lake Charles and Lallie Kemp Hospital in Independence.
So what does this mean for University Medical Center in Lafayette, which does have a training program?
