SHREVEPORT JOURNAL _ SHREVEPORT-BOSSIER CITY, LA., FRIDAY, JUNE 18, 1982 11A WilHamsson pushes medical center funds Don Williamson, former state senator and can-didate for mayor of Shreveport, has sent a tele-gram to Gov. Dave Treen requesting that Treen's general appropriations bill be amended to provide funds for LSU Medical Center. The Shreveport mayoral candidate, who as state senator authored a bill integrating the former Confederate Hospital into the LSU Medical Center system, told Treen that the funds are needed to "re-open 122 beds that have been put out of use" and that are needed to provide health care in Northwest Louisiana. Williamson wrote Treen that the monies are needed "to assist in staff training at the medical school." He also sent copies of the telegram to the Caddo Parish delegation in Baton Rouge. "In the present budget, the medical center is not receiving enough money to perform up to its capabilities," Williamson said in a news release. "It is a wonderful facility that has been built up over the years and it is a disappointment to me that it is ; being funded at a level to carry out its mission as a health care facility." The candidate said that aside from the health care aspect involved, the additional personnel are needed in the "performance of training activities in association with the LSU Medical School."
