LSU Student Health Center partially reopens after fire, fully reopens Wednesday
BATON ROUGE - Officials at LSU say the Student Health Center that was damaged by fire last Thursday will partially reopen on Tuesday.
The Mental Health and Wellness portion of the health center will be fully open and operational, but the Medical Clinic will remain unable to see patients. Access to the building is limited to the southwest and northwest entrances at this time, according to LSU.
The health center remained closed on Monday after a fire on June 9 caused an estimated $1.7 million in damage to the structure. Restoration and cleanup efforts are already underway with the cause of the fire still under investigation.
Officials estimate full restoration of the LSU Health Center will take about six months. In the meantime, health center officials will work to maximize the amount of usable space available in the building to limit the impact to patients. Students who had scheduled appointments during the closure have been contacted to move their appointments.
Tuesday evening, the LSU Student Health Center took to Twitter to announce the facility will fully reopen on Wednesday, June 15 with limited appointments available.
NOTICE: We're pleased to announce that the SHC will fully reopen on Wed. 6/15! Limited appts available. Thx to crews for their work! @lsu— LSU Student Health (@LSUHealthCenter) June 14, 2016
