Program D: Huey P. Long Medical Center

Program Authorization: R.S. 36:254, 258, 259; R.S. 40:2012, 2014; Act 3 of 1997

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Huey P. Long Pineville and England Airpark Medical Centers is to provide accessible quality health care for the medically indigent, uninsured, Medicaid and Medicare eligible patients, and self-paying patients.

The goal of Huey P. Long Pineville (an inpatient facility) and England Airpark Medical Center (an outpatient facility) is ensure that the Medical Centers provide quality health care to the community in the most effective and efficient manner possible.

Huey P. Long Medical Center was opened in 1939 to provide care to indigent families residing in the central Louisiana parishes of Allen, Avoyelles, Catahoula, Concordia, Grant, LaSalle, Rapides, Vernon, and Winn. The hospital is currently staffed for 123 beds.

The medical centers provides additional support functions such as pharmacy; blood banks; respiratory therapy; anesthesiology; and various diagnostic services and other support functions of a non-medical nature, such as administration; maintenance; housekeeping mail service; purchasing; accounting; and admissions and registration. The facility also maintains a stipend program for medical residents and contracts for physician and anatomical services and works cooperatively with medical schools and other health education institutions to broaden the opportunity for clinical training in the hospital.

 

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indicators are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).

 

 

 

 

 

RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR THE PROGRAM

The Federal Funds are derived from Title XVIII, Medicare payments for services provided to Medicare eligible patients.

DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDATION AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 98.5% of the existing operating budget. It represents 86.7% of the total request ($51,997,061) for this program. The major reason for the net decrease in this program is a reduction in Risk Management premiums. This decrease is offset by a 1% House Officer Stipend increase to the Southern Regional Average for public hospitals, the transfer of additional Ryan White Federal Funds from the Office of Public Health for HIV medications, and an increase in funding for equipment maintenance contracts. The changes should have no significant impact on the delivery of services.
