VA, LSU choose site for hospitals

New Orleans Times-Picayune, November 25, 2008

Louisiana State University and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs are set to announce plans for a new medical campus in downtown New Orleans that is expected to generate thousands of jobs. The medical center will replace the hospitals that each institution lost to Hurricane Katrina. It will also anchor a biosciences corridor taking shape downtown and ensure the city's medical schools have a place to train doctors and nurses.
