Moore) Expanded Services Seen for CMMC The doors of Confederate Memorial Medical Center are going to be open wider and wider for all citizens of the area — indigent or npt — according to Harold K. Quinn, chairman of the hospital's board. Quinn spoke last night at a dinner at the Shreveport Club honoring senior medical stu-dents at Louisiana State Univer-sity Medical Center. Quinn said within 30 days the same hospital services would be available for all taxpayers, whether they were indigent or not. Arrangements will be made for partial payment for the serviees. Quinn also said that later there will be a wing in the hospital for private patients. He also predicted that eventu-ally every emergency case in in North Louisiana will be brought to Confederate, and ore-dieted that within the next 18 months the hosrrtal will have both a trauma unit and a burn unit. As part of the trauma unit, ambulances and personnel will be on call for all apcidents in the area, he said. And at a recent board meet-ing Dr. Rod Yeager, medical director, said that ambulances will also be a part of the hospital fleet. Patients will be brought first to Confederate and then shipped to other hospitals after the initial treatment, Quinn said. Quinn also said that Confeder-ate is planning satellite clinics and mobile satellite clinics. Quinn — an insurance execu-tive who has been board chair-man less than three months — told the students that if they come to Confederate for their postgraduate training they will see things done "which are not done a n y w h e r e else in the country . . . you are going to receive good training — the best." Quinn also promised them representation on the board, including a vote after Jan. 1. Also speaking was Yeager, who said that, contrary to some reports, the patient load at Confederate is not decreasing. In other areas of the hospital, services have either remained stable or increased. Both Yeager and Dr. Charles K n i g h t — former chief of surgery — said that interns and residents still have patient res-ponsibility at Confederate. Also greeting the students were Robert C. Hall, acting director, and State Senator C. Kay Carter. Carter told the group — which included members of the medi-cal s c h o ol and Confederate staff and physicians in private p r a c t i ce — that the new Confederate board of directors had "shown more enthusiasm in three months than the other board had shown in 20 years."
