BRF Refutes LSU Claims Over North Louisiana Hospitals
The operator of two public hospitals in north Louisiana says LSU's claims that it breached its contract are based on subjective complaints rather than anything measurable, and therefore are not valid.
Biomedical Research Foundation Chairman Steve Skrivanos made the statement in a letter sent Friday to Louisiana State University President F. King Alexander.
He says a contract monitor was set up to ensure that the hospitals in Shreveport and Monroe are being run correctly - and reports and data from the monitor would be needed to back up claims of a breach of contract.
Skrivanos wrote that the foundation is willing to address each of LSU's complaints by Wednesday, but would prefer LSU withdraw its breach notice and allow third-party mediation to resolve any disputes.
