Officials Confirm Jackson Parish Hospital Investigation

Officials with the Jackson Parish Hospital in Jonesboro late this morning confirmed that the facility is being investigated by the Louisiana State Police (LSP) regarding “internal financial matters.”

Administrator Lloyd Munger and Chief Financial Officer David Sanders said the matter did not concern patient care, hospital operations, insurance payments, billing issues, or federal reimbursements.

Sanders added that the financial condition of the hospital is the best it has been in years.

Both said no accusations of wrongdoing have been made, nor have any arrests been effected. Lincoln Parish News Online can confirm that no arrests had appeared on the booking log of the Jackson Parish Sheriff’s Office as of late this morning.

Munger and Sanders said they expected a report by the end of the year, and depending upon the findings, would take appropriate steps.
