  • Beginning Monday, February 12, 2007, the final stages of the Atrium renovation will begin. The contractor will begin installing the new flooring from the Medical Education Building to the Allied Health and School of Nursing Building. At all times a pathway will be kept open for passage between the buildings. The path will change frequently, but you will be able to walk through this area.  We ask for your continued patience as this project moves toward completion. 
  • The States disposal contractor picked up the flooded grounds equipment from the Dental School back campus. 
  • LSUHSC Facility Services has completed removing the ceiling tiles from the 8th floor of the Dental Clinic Building and is over halfway through the removal process on the 6th floor.
