Baton Rouge, LA – Our Lady of the Lake has been working for the last 18 months to create a new freestanding hospital.
It is to be located on property that runs parallel to I-10 in between Essen and Bluebonnet near the existing main campus.
We understand children are not small adults and they require unique care in a specialized environment with equipment designed especially for them. Our goal is to design and build a hospital that will further advance care and research for children through greater recruitment of pediatric specialists, building upon our successful pediatric residency program that trains future Louisiana pediatricians, and capitalizing upon strategic partnerships like that of our relationship with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. -Shaun Kemmerly, MD, chief medical officer, Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital.
Plans for the new children’s hospital are predicted to be finalized in the next 6-8 months.
