Louisiana Health Secretary Alan Levine on Monday said that the governor’s office is considering the termination of Louisiana State University’s legal affiliation with a proposed academic and charity hospital in New Orleans. The LSU board of supervisors has rejected a governing agreement for the facility that had been negotiated by Levine.

The proposed $1.2 billion complex would be financed in part with at least $400 million of revenue bonds to be issued by LSU. The hospital would serve as the teaching facility for LSU and the private Tulane University, and also treat indigent patients.
