Willis-Knighton Health System will showcase its Innovation Center in Bossier City at a public grand opening Sunday, May 4, from 2 to 4 p.m.
Willis-Knighton and Blue Cross are in active dialogue regarding renewal of the agreement to provide care for members in our market. Blue Cross and Blue Shield payments are well below market rates. These payments are not sufficient to cover the inflationary costs and technological advances required to provide the best care to patients in WK’s hospitals, physician offices, as well as ancillary and outpatient care sites throughout Northwest Louisiana. Our 450 multispecialty providers value their relationship with their patients, and we hope that Blue Cross will continue to allow its members to receive the highest quality of care from physicians they know and trust.
