The following is a press release from Our Lady of the Lake:

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - On Friday, Aug. 12, the Our Lady of the Lake Board of Directors approved the site selection for the future home of Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Institute.

This newly constructed building will further enhance everything Our Lady of the Lake, its physicians and clinical teams need to continue its momentum as a regional destination for cancer care, according to Our Lady of the Lake.

The location considers close proximity to today’s regional medical center allowing continuity for exceptional clinical quality as well as the comprehensive needs of the cancer patient and their family, reportedly.

As clinicians and teams collaborate on the details for this type of facility, priority is also given to the opportunity for innovations, research, discovery, and future growth, accordingly.

Specific attention to a location that highlights the campus chapel affirms care and treatment spanning physical, emotional and spiritual needs, reportedly.

“For nearly 100 years Our Lady of the Lake has served the region and today’s decision signifies a great step forward in our efforts to continue providing the highest quality of care for our patients and the entire Gulf Coast Region,” stated chairman of the Board of Directors, Skip Philips.
