Staff Says Goodbye to Huey P. Long Medical Center

Posted: Updated:
PINEVILLE, La. (KALB News Channel 5)--Tuesday morning the staff of Huey P. Long Medical Center left work for the very last time.

Staff members walked thru the front gate of the hospital together as a show of solidarity.  It was an emotional time for everyone as they said goodbye to co-workers.  The group of about 20 people carried small lights and wore t-shirts that read "trashed" across the back, a sign of how they felt as they are now left to look for new jobs to help support their families.

"I don't know how to explain it to you, you've been somewhere for 20 plus years, it's a part of your life and somebody just slams the door,' Tammy Derouen, an employee, said.

No word on what the future holds for the now shuttered charity hospital that first opened its doors 75 years ago.
