METAIRIE, La. (AP) - Officials with East Jefferson General Hospital and Hospital Corp. of America have terminated negotiations on a lease deal.

The Nashville-based hospital management company initially withdrew its candidacy to lease East Jefferson along with West Jefferson Medical Center last February, citing political turmoil in the Jefferson Parish Council’s decision-making process. The council selected LCMC Health to take over West Jefferson one year ago, and HCA said in December that it was again considering a deal for East Jefferson.

Officials with East Jefferson said in a news release Monday that HCA failed to secure a restructuring of its relationship with Tulane University that it deemed necessary for any transaction involving East Jefferson.
