University Hospital restoring services


LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Since Lafayette General Health took over operations of the former University Medical Center six months ago, once-shuttered patient services are being restored and more changes are in the works for 2014.           

Lafayette General Health took over operations of the public hospital in June as part of a $15.8 million lease agreement with LSU. The facility was renamed University Hospital & Clinics.           

Jared Stark, CEO of University Hospital & Clinics tells The Advocate reports ( ) plans to improve the hospital and restore services that were previously eliminated or reduced by state budget cuts are on track at the privately managed facility.

Stark says the hospital also reopened its pediatric clinic in early December, earlier than anticipated due to preparations by staff and clinic physicians.
