    University Health in Shreveport in such an important and valuable asset, not only to the Ark-La-Tex area, but to the entire state of Louisiana. Closing U Health AND the LSU Medical School would degrade the attraction of good businesses with well paid Employees to particularly Northern Louisiana. I know that it is expensive to run, but its value to us in return, not only for excellent health care to all, not JUST to the disadvantaged, but to those who need top notch care, is tremendous. The numbers of doctors produced each year, who then spend many years in very well known medical institutions throughout the country allows for good publicity and attraction of doctor from those other areas to be drawn to the Shreveport-Bossier area. The Ark-La-Tex has a population base of slightly over 1 million people, in a fairly close area with many important major highways having been built over the years in a well laid out manner stretching from Mexico to Canada, and in all directions toward large metropolitan areas throughout the US. With some good planning, the Ark-La-Tex area, centered in Shreveport-Bossier, with major AFB Barksdale located here and not likely to be closed but expanded in the future, we could become at least as large as the Baton Rouge area, drawing well funded and large businesses again, as in the past prior to recessions. The Haynesville Shale area will soon add more extensive energy investment in this area along the lines of the Bakken formation in North Dakota. The Shreveport-Bossier-DeSoto is on the edge of an expansion that could double our population and tax base in the next decade or two, with much of that growth coming by 2025. The importance of LSU-Shreveport, as well as Centenary College and BPCC are Educational Resources that complement University Health in such a way that should be emphasized and not discounted. PLEASE add my name to the Petition to support, and increase as soon as possible funding for University Health, a very fine Institution which, though I have had excellent Private Insurance over the years, have used as a great expert Medical Institution with Practicing Professors who have added a significant layer to the already great Medical Care we have been blessed with in our area. Thank you, Randal L Coon

    After serving 20 years active duty in the U.S. Army and ten years of which I was stationed at Fort Bragg, NC 82nd Airborne Division. I moved back to Louisiana in 2013, and it was a great sight to see my local community hospital University Health improve patient care and wait time tremendously. I believe just because patients are less fortunate to pay for health care they shouldn’t be deprived of affordable health care. I vote to leave BRF leadership in place and focus on patient care as the number priority.

    Why is the State so set on removing BRF from management of University Health? Everything the state has cited to the public about BRFs mismanagement has been false, why keep trying to ruin the best thing that has ever happened for the Patients and Employess of University Health?
