Governor Musgrove won't call a state of emergency to deal with the surgeons' walkout. His solution is to get the surgeons who still have insurance back to work Friday.
That would give the state time to see what it can do to resolve the malpractice insurance worries that shut down several coast operating rooms.
Late Thursday afternoon, the Governor came to Gulfport. He met with doctors, hospital administrators and county leaders. Afterward, he stopped by the WLOX studios and explained his strategy.
