Work finally starts on RMJM's New Orleans cancer centre

  • Comment

Construction has finally begun on a new cancer research facility in New Orleans designed by Brits RMJM

Plans for the 10-storey building have been on the drawing board ‘for most of the past decade’ with final designs completed as long ago as 2005, shortly after Hurricane Katrina hit the city.

It is hoped the building - officially the Louisiana Cancer Research Centre - will now open in 2012.

‘It has been a long time coming, but the project is definitely on course now,’ said Steven Moye, President/CEO of the Louisiana Cancer Research Consortium. ‘It is the first of many state-of-the-art medical facilities planned for the city and it will pioneer breakthrough advances in detection, treatment and prevention of cancer while fostering economic development in Downtown.’

Louisiana is the least healthy state in the US and has the highest rate of cancer deaths in the country.
