Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital celebrated the completion of steel construction at the free-standing hospital with the hosting of special beams. The beams, which were signed in person and virtually by more than 1,000 individuals, represented many supporters of the new hospital from across Louisiana and beyond. In all, 2,500 tons of structural steel were placed along with 600 tons of rebar for foundations and walls, 14,000 cubic yards of concrete and 1,000 piles supporting the hospital and medical office building. The new hospital is expected to open in 2019.
