BATON ROUGE – Our Lady of the Lake (OLOL) and the NeuroMedical Center are expanding their 40-year partnership by building a 20-bed Neuro Intensive Care Unit on the ninth floor of OLOL Regional Medical Center.

The new Neuro Intensive Care Unit, expected to be completed in 2020, will bring the latest tools in stroke care to the capital city and will establish OLOL as a destination center for comprehensive stroke and neurological care.

The Neuro Intensive Care Unit will be home to the latest in Neuro-Imaging Capabilities, including Baton Rouge’s first state-of-the-art CT scanner and interventional suite. 

The Governor spoke highly of the new unit, saying, "This partnership between Our Lady of the Lake and The NeuroMedicalCenter will help transform Baton Rouge into a premier destination for neuroscience.”
