Bye Bye Big Charity

If you haven't heard, Big Charity in New Orleans will never reopen again. Not in it's old building anyway. Actually, word on the street is that there are no plans for it to ever reopen. The truth is is that the building was old and nasty anyway. And I do mean real nasty folks. Before Katrina hit the state was about to break new ground to build a brand new building for Big Charity. All those plans are gone now. Their patient population has moved on.

It is hard to imagine. The hospital was the largest trauma center in the state just a few weeks ago.
