Ground has been broken for the third phase of CHRISTUS Health Shreveport-Bossier’s $55-million expansion.  

The new West Wing at CHRISTUS Highland Medical Center, when completed, will house the Birth Place, NICU, and rehabilitation services.  It will also include a new hospital lobby and the Cancer Treatment Center, which will relocate to Highland in the Summer of 2015. Completion of the West Wing will also include a new adult ICU and additional day surgery space.

“We’re pleased to announce that we are able to fast-track some of our construction at Highland,” said CHRISTUS Health Shreveport-Bossier COO William Lunn.  “In addition to moving and colsolidating the NICU and Birth Place services on the Highland campus earlier than planned,” said Dr. Lunn, “We’ve also opened a new primary care practice in southeast Shreveport and will open a satellite clinic in Bossier for our Cancer Treatment Center in April.”  Dr, Lunn says that most of the adult services at the CHRISTUS Schumpert campus have already been transitioned to the Highland campus and 15 additional acres adjacent to that campus have been acquired for future expansion.

By the way, you may notice that Miss Louisiana is the only person in the photo not wearing a hard hat.  That’s because she was wearing her tiara and you can’t fit a hard hat over a tiara!
