The opportunity to serve Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center, create a new health center for the people of Lafayette, and continue the relationship with our friends there, has been a joy. Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center (OLOL), located in Lafayette, Louisiana resulted from exceptional collaboration and vision of the clinical teams and the designers of the new replacement campus.

Blending the clinical vision with global strategic objectives for the health system with a design that achieved thousands of functional and clinical objectives into an efficient, flexible and technologically advanced campus was the primary goal of this three-year effort.

Goal achieved.
The Art and Science of Health Care Planning and Design relies upon transforming thousands of ideas into a vision that achieves clinical goals and functional objectives and conveys a commitment to faith, healing and compassion. OLOL is a product of this philosophy.

This project provided a procedural platform that allows the staff to be highly efficient in the treatment of patients. The procedural platform is located on the second floor, with an ambulance ramp to the Emergency Department, in order for the Emergency Department to remain adjacent to the Surgery and Imaging Departments. All patient rooms are same-handed and private with large windows overlooking the grounds. Green roofs and exterior respite areas are incorporated so that the staff and patients can enjoy the outdoor environment adjacent to the patient floors.

The six-floor, 410,273-square-foot facility houses all acute-care clinical services, has 192 private patient rooms and rests on a 45-acre Greenfield site in a growing area of Lafayette. This state-of-the-art acute care hospital has 1,500 parking spaces and a 16,000-square-foot Central Energy Plant designed for future growth. The hospital is also structurally engineered for the future expansion of two additional floors.

The Replacement Hospital will be the epicenter of the OLOL campus, which will additionally include a Cancer Center, Heart Hospital, Ambulatory Surgery Center, Convent, Spa/Fitness Center, and an Outpatient Clinic and MOB.

TEG's "Efficient Design+ Productive Care" Design Strategy allowed OLOL to incorporate innovative and efficient clinical features and relationships that are based on EBD findings from TEG Health Research.

- Clinical Flex Concepts for Peak Utilization Volumes
- Emergency/Surgery Cross Utilization Spaces
- Clinical Familiarization/Standardization of Same Handed Patient Rooms
- Clinical Consistencies in Treatment Spaces
- Campus Flexibility to Respond to Dynamic Growth
- Planning to Provide for Emerging Technologies

Saving lives and improving the health of those within our communities is one of the most benevolent acts anyone in the health profession can accomplish. Much has been achieved through the vision and leadership of William "Bud" Barrow, President & CEO Our Lady of Lourdes Regioanl Medical Center, the Sisters of the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady, the Board of Directors of OLOL and the entire team. TEG is delighted to have been a part of this grand calling.
