Lake Charles Memorial Hospital opened a new courtyard space called the
Todd Terrace at the main hospital campus on Oak Park Boulevard.
The terrace was built in place of a former designated smoking area and
now includes umbrella tables, chairs, outdoor music, sculptures and all
new landscaping. Visitors and employees can use the terrace to step out
into the outdoors while enjoying lunch or a snack. The space is now a
NON-smoking area as are all of the Memorial campuses.
When Memorial Health System went tobacco free last year, the Foundation
at Lake Charles Memorial began to raise money to renovate the space. Memorial
employees stepped up and donated more than $90,000 towards the project,
while Ray and Ann Todd gave a major naming rights donation to the Foundation
endowment. Donors are recognized throughout the terrace with individual
or corporate brick pavers.
The brick campaign is open to outside donors as well by contacting the
Foundation at 337-494-3226.
