On Friday, November 18th officials celebrated the grand opening of the Veterans Affairs hospital in New Orleans. The 1.7 million-square-foot hospital, sits atop 31 acres.
The cutting-edge campus will employ as many as 2,800 people. This includes 220 doctors, along with hundreds of medical students and residents in-training for 172 different positions.
Louisiana Governor, John Bel Edwards, himself an Army veteran, said “we ask so much of our veterans. We ask them to risk everything. Literally everything so that our nation might remain free. And because we ask everything of them, the least we can do is to give them the very best care and respect in return.”
