Interim LSU Public Hospital (New Orleans)
The LSU Health System’s Health Care Services Division is conducting a nationwide search for a Chief Executive Officer of Interim LSU Public Hospital to be at the forefront of the creation of the world-class LSU Academic Medical Center. This teaching and research medical center will be the centerpiece of the resurgence of Post-Katrina New Orleans.
LSU is building this $1.2 billion, hurricane-hardened, academic medical center for medical, dental, and allied health education; twenty-first century health care; and bioscience research. It will have a Level 1 trauma center and Level III Regional Neonatal Referral Center.
LSU and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs are pursuing a partnership to build their respective hospitals, side by side, in downtown New Orleans, near the LSU and Tulane schools of medicine, on a 70-acre site.
The close proximity of the two hospitals will continue the long relationship of staffs of the medical schools and VA serving the educational and health care needs of each other.
The combined two-hospital $2 billion project has numerous benefits, including the opportunity for the medical center to be an anchor in the developing biomedical research corridor in downtown New Orleans and a national center for bioscience research.
Architects are drawing the blueprints now. Doors will open in 2013.
