Jindal Will Sell New Orleans Adolescent Hospital

Gov. Jindal's current budget depends on the sale of New Orleans Adolescent Hospital (NOAH). 

In the spending plan for the LSU public hospitals, $35 million is tied to the sale of the New Orleans Adolescent Hospital, which hasn't yet been sold. [Alexandria Town Talk, 3/12/2012]

The state acquired the property through a Dec. 16, 1981 transfer agreement from the federal government. That deal specified that the property would used for "general health care" services for 30 years, a period that expires in December 2011. [Times-Picayune, 4/7/2010]
You remember NOAH.  

That's the safe place we used to have for our suicidal and homicidal kids before we routinely shipped them off to Shreveport.
