"somebody's going broke"

Garland Robinette, hosting Fred Cerise and Larry Hollier on WWL radio, made this market-based observation today, surveying the various hospital projects that are supposed to come online here in the New Orleans metro area (Chalmette, Methodist in the East, etc.) and will ultimately increase the hospital bed oversupply that already pervades the metro region.

Cerise said something to the effect of "Whatever we do will not affect the number of beds in Louisiana."  While that may be true in some official reporting sense, it certainly seems a ridiculous statement when considered in the realm of reality (unless he knows something I don't know about a massive planned reduction in beds elsewhere in the state).
