NEW ORLEANS — Tulane Medical Center celebrated the opening of the newly renovated 7 East medical-surgical unit on Monday, August 8, 2016, with a ceremonial ribbon cutting and blessing of the unit by a hospital chaplain. The unveiling of the unit marks the completion of the first phase of a year-long construction project to renovate and improve several areas of the downtown Tulane Medical Center campus.

         “World-class care begins with having a modern facility,” said Dr. William Lunn, president and CEO of Tulane Health System. “Throughout this year, we will be renovating and upgrading all our medical surgical units to have the latest technology and modern comforts our patients and staff deserve.”

         The next phase of renovations will begin in a few weeks and will include the renovation of another medical- surgical unit and construction of a new Bone Marrow Transplant Unit. The $6 million project also includes the addition of a 128-slice CT scanner and a 3 Tesla MRI.
