Healthcare Partnership

In February 2022, LSU, Our Lady of the Lake Health, and LCMC Health announced a watershed effort to transform patient care and the workforce pipeline, charting a new course for the future of Louisiana and the well-being of Louisianans. The focus of these solutions-driven investments in LSU – $170 million by Our Lady of the Lake Health and $75 million by LCMC Health – is elevation and integration: elevating quality of education, research, healthcare, and athletics programs and integrating impact, capacity, and opportunity.
