SMM Helps Build the Lady of the Sea Hospital

Sustainable Modular Management (SMM) helped to provide a temporary hospital for the Lady of the Sea’s. The temporary hospital is scheduled to open at the end of 2023. “This temporary hospital will bridge the gap of inpatient services while we continue to work toward building the new permanent hospital,” said Lloyd Guidry, Jr., Pharm.D., CEO of Lady of the Sea General Hospital.

Q. What services will be in the hospital?

A. With SMM’s help, the hospital is working diligently to bring back all of the services offered prior to Hurricane Ida. Inpatient care, ED, Lab, Radiology, Cardiopulmonary, Medical Records, and Business Services will be located at one site, making it convenient for patients.

  • Relocated helipad is across the street by the current ER.
  • Expanded healthcare services will include improved imaging, mammography, dexascan and MRI.
  • Nutritional Services and meals will be available
  • We will be expanding staffing and rehiring some staff who lost their position as a result of the hospital closure
  • We will be bringing inpatient care back to the community with a 10 bed Med-Surg unit
  • Patient privacy will be improved in the ED
  • Improved work space for all hospital service

The temporary facility is constructed by Sustainable Modular Management and is a modular building that is able to withstand up to Category 4 (130-156 mph) hurricane winds. It covers over 28,000 square feet and offers a great healthcare facility for the community. As the original structure was damaged in a hurricane, this type of building will be important for the future. To learn more about this project, visit Lady of the Sea.
