No wonder they were so anxious to appoint themselves on the Commission in
the first place !
ST. BERNARD'S HOSPITAL BOARD OPTS FOR NEW LEADERSHIP
New Chairman plans to quicken Commission's pace
With newly appointed members Wayne J. Landry and George Cavignac finally in
place on St. Bernard Parish's Hospital Service District Commission, the
Board chose to elect them as Chairman and Vice-Chairman on Wednesday, July
15th. As the two took their seats for the first time at Wednesday's
meeting, fellow Board Commissioner James DiFatta offered a motion of
nomination for Mr. Landry to replace the existing Chairman, Danny Dysart.
With the vote for Landry successful, Mr. DiFatta, the Board's Treasurer,
then went on to nominate Mr. Cavignac as Vice-Chairman to fill the officer
vacancy left by Dr. Bryan Bertucci's resignation.
Mr. Landry stated, "I'm honored that my fellow Commissioners have elected me
as Chairman to lead our hospital project forward. This hospital is St.
Bernard's most critical recovery project -- not only to attract our
residents to return, but as a serious economic development tool. I plan on
keeping a firm grasp of the situation to prevent any unnecessary delays."
Signs of this new pace were evident at the rest of the meeting, as a lengthy
20 item agenda was tackled, setting the stage for everything from necessary
committees to document preparations for contracts of various work required
for the hospital. Elected also as Secretary was Commissioner Ron Chapman,
who was unable to attend Wednesday night's meeting.
