BAY ST. LOUIS — The operation of Hancock Medical Center is in the hands of Ochsner Health System for 90 days. The board of supervisors signed a contract with Ochsner to improve how the county-owned medical facility performs.
Supervisors terminated the management contract with Quorum Health Resources, which had run the hospital for several years.
Ochsner’s Polly Davenport is leading the management team. She is CEO of Ochsner’s North Shore Region.
