The Shreveport Times reports that the former Bossier Medical Center has been acquired by Willis Knighton Health System. Willis Knighton first attempted to purchase the property almost a decade ago. Back in 1999 the property was purchased by Chistus Health Shreveport-Bossier for $23 million.

I am anxious to see what will be developed there in the next few months. I'm sure it will need several upgrades as I can't even remember when the center was functional.

This only proves that the medical industry remains strong in Shreveport-Bossier even with all the fervor surrounding the Affordable Care Act.
