A report on how much debt can be supported by the proposed new state teaching hospital in New Orleans will be released by the first of October.

Current plans are to issue up to $500 million of revenue bonds to help finance the new $1.2 billion facility, which will be operated by Louisiana State University.

The firm also will prepare a more detailed financial analysis before any bonds are sold, officials said.
