LaSalle General Hospital serves the rural population of LaSalle parish. The need to expand outpatient services led to the development of a new free-standing building to house the Home Health and Physical Therapy departments.
The building site is highly visible from the major highway. The building’s exterior materials were chosen to complement the materials and colors used at the main hospital building and to clarify the extent of the campus.
Sloped roofs respond to the single-family house context of the area while a variety of building forms and their arrangement identifies and distinguishes each department. The natural light filled therapy/exercise space now houses a successful and expanding wellness program.
