St. Bernard Parish Hospital a final piece of Katrina recovery
As the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina nears, St. Bernard Parish will finally be able to celebrate the recovery of one of its greatest losses since the storm. In early August, St. Bernard Parish Hospital will open its doors, boasting a state-of-the-art, 113,000-square-foot hospital and an adjoining 60,000-square-foot medical office building. The facility has been under planning and construction for the past three years. For Wayne Landry, chairman of St. Bernard Parish's Hospital Service District, the opening of the hospital is one of the last remaining pieces in ensuring strong economic and community recovery in St. Bernard Parish.
