Shreveport Senator Greg Tarver Critical of Health Care Study

State Senator Greg Tarver takes issue with a study by Economist Dr. Loren Scott which claims the privatization of public run hospitals has been good for the state of Louisiana. Dr. Scott says the new arrangement has pumped 2.7 billion dollars into the state’s budget. Scott says 900 million of that is from University Health.

Dr. Scott says the hospitals have been able to provide better services and cut down on wait times at the hospitals. But Tarver says that is not true. He says he is a patient and he hears from folks all the time they they face 4 and 6 hour wait times for every visit.

Tarver also says BRF owes the LSU Health Science Center more than $9 million dollars. He shared with KEEL News this letter from GE Ghali to Daniel Snyder, the CEO of University Health.
