Yeah but an uninsured person who got cancer was able to be treated there without 100,000 dollars of debt right? They can't do that at any hospital.

we complain about welfare but that is a very small part of the budget. Healthcare and education are the huge pieces of the pie.


Then lets cut SUNO, NSU, Gramblin, and all the other piss poor universities that have no purpose.

ETA: Add: LSUA, LSUE, SU-S, Nicholls, and ULM( and give tech the pharmacy school).

Earl K. Long in Baton Rouge is closing the intensive care unit and is being merged into Our Lady of the Lake Hospital in BR with the exception of keeping one floor open with 15 beds.

Jindal made a half assed effort to close SUNO. There was no serious attempt to consolidate schools. That was for appearances only. It worked. It convinced enough of his supporters to believe he tried and it wouldn't work. Talk to people actually involved in government.

surgery - average, Tulane and Ochsner are better
peds - average
ortho - is such a competitive residency that it is good pretty much everywhere
OMFS - you taking about ENT? kinda the same as ortho, it is such a competitive residency that it is pretty good wherever you go

why should tax dollars cover lung or throat cancer that some poor SOB got from smoking 2 packs a day for 50 years?

ok. So you proved my point. They have more than one good program. Oh and OMFS is not ENT. OMFS does an ENT rotation in their residency.

No one would ever say this. Especially Ochsner.

And you have to get in the system there. My dad(not insured cause his work won't pay for it and he cannot afford it on his own) had hip replacement at EKL years ago. He received awesome care there.

He had to go through the ER there, wait like 10 hours to be seen about his hip pain to get in the system.
