f Operating Officer. The architectural firm Rozas/Ward Architects handled architectural design and remodeling and Construction South was the general contractor. "It was important to us that we used a local firm to manage this project and provide work to over 250 local workers," says Thomas. Additional improvements to the Ochsner Baptist campus include a family chapel, physician's dining area, new cafeteria, and improved boiler and chiller infrastructures.

As the campus grows, so will its staffing. "We anticipate hiring over 100 new employees to staff the additional beds and the ER," says Thomas. "This will funnel an additional $5M into the local economy through employee salaries; support that's much needed during our nation's financial crisis."

To date, Ochsner has invested over $30 million to revitalize the Baptist campus. "This facility has deep roots in the New Orleans community and we're committed to making it a thriving resource for the city's future," says Wolterman. The facility is still in negotiations to develop a Senior Living Center anticipated for opening in 2013.

"In 2006, Ochsner promised the region that 'Baptist was back!' and we're making good on that promise and our plan," says Dr. Patrick Quinlan, M.D. Chief Executive Officer of Ochsner Health System. "The Baptist facility holds over 70 years of outstanding care for thousands of New Orleanians, and we want our community to know we're here to stay and committed to rebuilding our region's healthcare system."

As a community partner, Ochsner has "adopted" Samuel J. Green Charter Elementary investing staff time at the school to educate students on healthy living and has reached out to local neighborhood associations to hold monthly meetings at the Baptist Campus.
