BATON ROUGE, Louisiana — LSU is seeking to end its deal with the private operator of its Shreveport and Monroe hospitals.

The university system sent formal notice Thursday to the Biomedical Research Foundation of Northwest Louisiana that it considers the hospital manager in breach of its contract. It gave the foundation until Oct. 5 to withdraw as hospital operator.

In a statement, LSU System President F. King Alexander said the two sides have "exhausted all avenues to resolve our differences amicably."

Alexander has said the foundation hasn't established a sustainable financial model for the hospitals and has threatened the stability of the medical school and the hospitals.

The foundation called LSU's actions illegal and disruptive and said it intends to sue.

BRF took control of the two north Louisiana hospitals in October 2013.
