MOREHOUSE, La. (AP) - The governing board of the Morehouse General Hospital is talking with a Texas company about helping operate the hospital.

The News-Star reports (https://tnsne.ws/1WeNDiI ) that the board is negotiating with a management agreement with Community Hospital Corporation of Plano, Texas.

The hospital previously entered into negotiations with IASIS health-care. Those negotiations ended in April.

Jim Albritton, interim chief executive officer and chief financial officer at MGH, said the hospital hopes to complete the management agreement with CHC soon.

The hospital is dealing with financial problems. In April, Albritton said fewer patients is the main reason for the hospital’s financial woes.

Albritton says a management agreement could cost the hospital $600,000 a year.

The board would remain in charge of day-to-day operations and the management firm would report to the board.
