Several St. Bernard Parish Hospital employees appeared in the Council Chambers Tuesday night to voice their concerns over their job security and the state of the hospital. On the agenda Tuesday night was an ordinance asking the Hospital Service District (HSD) “to submit a list of operational negative impact items if the hospital were managed by a large established regional healthcare provider.” The employees feared that if the hospital were run by a third-party provider, they would lose their jobs.
