BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Some lawmakers in Baton Rouge could meet Thursday to discuss the major changes happening with the Baton Rouge General Medical Center and its Mid-City location.

Hospital officials say moving the Burn Unit from that location to Bluebonnet is logistical.

They say it makes sense to have the Burn Unit where the emergency room was moved. However, lawmakers say the issue is with funding and whether these hospitals can survive.
