HCA, Ochsner pull the plug on partnership talks with Louisiana hospital

New Orleans-based Ochsner Health System has ended partnership talks with Metairie, La.-based East Jefferson General Hospital less than two weeks after Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Healthcare dropped out of the running to partner with the hospital, according to WWL-TV.

New Orleans-based University Healthcare System, a partnership between Tulane University in New Orleans and HCA, signed a letter of intent to partner with East Jefferson General Hospital in 2017. However, HCA ended negotiations earlier this month.

Officials confirmed Aug. 22 that Ochsner also dropped out of partnership talks with the hospital.

Although HCA and Ochsner have ended negotiations, the hospital is still in discussions with New Orleans-based LCMC Health, according to the report.
