Women’s announces move-in date for replacement hospital

Staff reports

Woman's announced that August 5, 2012 is the expected move-in date for its replacement hospital, located at the corner of Airline Highway and Pecue Lane.

"The additional time allows Woman's team to fully prepare the new campus for the caliber of care expected at Woman's," says Teri Fontenot, Woman's President and CEO.

The previously scheduled date of June 3, 2012 was revised because the building was not complete enough in April to allow adequate time to train staff for their new work environment and ensure that all clinical systems are fully tested. Woman's administration, contractors, equipment suppliers, moving companies and Acadian Ambulance collaborated to set the new date.
