LSU's chief medical officer to resign

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU Health Care Services' chief executive and its chief medical officer is resigning next month.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1avRrVw ) Dr. Michael Kaiser will step down from his $350,000-a-year job effective Aug. 30.

Kaiser began the job last fall as the Jindal administration worked toward privatization of 6 of the seven charity hospitals in south Louisiana under the umbrella of the LSU Health Care Services Division, called HCSD.

In that role, Kaiser presided over the layoff of thousands of state employees who worked at LSU hospitals in Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Lafayette, Houma and Lake Charles. Bogalusa hospital employee layoffs are next.
