Louisiana State University Surgery Center to Become "Mini-Hospital"
Louisiana State University's outpatient surgery center will become a "mini-hospital" providing prisoner and general population when Earl K. Long Medical Center closes in north Baton Rouge, according to an Associated Press report.
State Department of Health and Hospitals Secretary Bruce Greenstein said the satellite surgical facility will be turned into a small hospital. The change will allow LSU to continue operating its outpatient clinics that serve the Baton Rouge area.
The outpatient surgery center is licensed for 66 beds in semi-private rooms.
