St. Tammany Parish Hospital officials talked about how the hospital had “made a position” for the purpose of providing employment for St. Tammany Parish District Attorney Walter Reed’s brother, and worried how it would look if word got out, according to emails obtained by NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune and WVUE Fox 8 News. They also were concerned he was publicly bragging about having the “easiest job in the hospital” and debated whether his replacement should be made full-time “just to show that Richard’s position was needed.”

Richard Reed, who was employed at the hospital for at least a decade, most recently worked as a clerk in the mailroom, the emails show. His job description and salary were not immediately available.

Walter Reed was paid a $30,000 annual retainer by the hospital for almost two decades although he never had a contract and there were no documents to show exactly what services he had performed for the money. He resigned as the hospital board’s attorney last month, less than two weeks after the news organizations raised questions about the arrangement.

Richard Reed’s position at St. Tammany Parish Hospital was designated full-time, but hospital personnel questioned whether it would be necessary to keep it that way after Richard Reed resigned June 13. His last day at the hospital is Friday (June 27), sources said.

Jean Holtman, the hospital’s vice president of human resources, recommended keeping the position full time, but Ron Scott, department head of materials management, suggested it only be a 20-hour a week position, emails show.
