Louisiana State University to Expand Ambulatory Care Model, Move Hospital Beds to Outpatient Surgical Center
Louisiana State University will expand its medical presence in south Baton Rouge, adding a medical office building with several outpatient clinics, according to a report by The Advocate.
The medical building will become home to outpatient clinics currently operated at the LSU Earl K. Long Medical Center's north Baton Rouge campus. The hospital will close in 2013 as LSU moves its inpatient care and medical education programs to Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center.
"In order for the LSU-OLOL Public Partnership to succeed, LSU Health Baton Rouge will need to grow the ambulatory care model, including a relocation to the LSU SF (Surgical Facility) on Perkins and the development of that site over the next decade," documents laying out the LSU plan state.
An outpatient surgical center located at 9032 Perkins Road will become home to a 15-bed LSU hospital once the Earl K. Long facility closes.
