Today marks a pivotal point in the construction of the new Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital.  Two beams with the signatures of more than 1,000 stakeholders including patients, staff, and donors will be hoisted to the very top of the new hospital and the steel structure will be complete.  From this point forward, the construction team led by Brasfield and Gorrie will focus on the exterior facings and the interiors of the new, world-class children’s hospital for Baton Rouge, LA.  The new children’s hospital is scheduled to open in 2019.

You can watch the steel-topping ceremony live on the Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital Facebook page at 1:30 pm CST.  Learn more about how you can help by tuning in to the Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital Mediathon this Thursday and Friday, November 16-17.  Click here or on the image below for details.
