Important N.O. health news--great news. News:
"Louisiana's charity hospital system and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs are entering into negotiations to build a shared hospital in New Orleans to replace their damaged facilities, which were flooded by Hurricane Katrina.

The VA and LSU, which runs the charity hospitals, planned to sign the agreement at an afternoon news conference at the state Capitol.

The agreement would be a significant step to reconstructing the safety net hospital system on which thousands of uninsured New Orleans area residents depended before Katrina."
