Hargrove new head of La emergency care network 

The Louisiana Emergency Response Network has hired Louisiana's Medicaid programs manager as its new executive director.

The network's board of directors said Thursday that before working for the state Department of Health and Hospitals, Paige B. Hargrove was medical management director for a 600-bed private medical center.

She's moving from Health and Hospitals to LERN. That's the state agency set up to coordinate care statewide for patients suddenly stricken by serious traumatic injury or time-sensitive illness, such as heart attack and stroke. Getting to the right place at the right time to receive the right care is a matter of life or death for these patients.
