NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Tulane Medical Center has acquired a hospital north of New Orleans - Lakeview Regional Medical Center in Covington.

Tulane now has three hospitals: Tulane Medical Center in New Orleans, Tulane Lakeside Hospital for Women and Children, 15 miles away in suburban Metairie (MET-uh-ree), and now Lakeview, 40 miles north of the main campus.

All three are part of the HCA MidAmerica Division, which covers Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri and Kansas. Lakeview already was in HCA, but was not part of Tulane.

Tulane governing board chair Walter Flower says this will let Lakeview’s physicians and staff work more closely with those at Tulane and Lakeside.

Spokesman Nicholas Adams says Tulane Medical Center has 1,500 employees downtown, 450 in Metairie and now 750 in Covington.
