DALLAS — No revenue bond debt will be required to build a new $1 billion state teaching hospital in New Orleans under a revised business plan being considered Thursday by the University Medical Center Management Corp.

The plan developed by Verité Healthcare Consulting no longer calls for $407 million of hospital revenue bonds for the 424-bed University Medical Center. The revision also reduces the cost of building the project to $1.088 billion from the original $1.2 billion without reducing the scope of the facility.
