BATON ROUGE - Governor Bobby Jindal, along with officials from LSU and Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center (OLOL) came together Monday to mark the opening of the new LSU Health Medical Education and Innovation Center on OLOL's main hospital campus in Baton Rouge.

The new center will serve as a hub for LSU's Baton Rouge-based physician training and graduate medical education programs and will offer a state of the art learning environment for students.

The new center include a Simulation and Innovation Center, which will allow medical students to practice surgery procedures and other medical care services with high-tech mannequins and simulators.

It is part of the state's historic public-private hospital partnerships that strengthen care for the people of Louisiana, lower costs and improve graduate medical education for future doctors across the state.
