For this week’s Medical Monday segment, Brian was joined by Dr. Trey Dunbar, a Pediatric Specialist for Our Lady of the Lake. Dr. Dunbar talked about the new Children’s hospital, which he says will open on Saturday, October 5th. There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony the day before. Dr. Dunbar explains that this will be a full-service children’s hospital and what people can expect from it. He discusses that since a full-service hospital will be right here that it will bring a lot of outside patients into the state to get care and that Baton Rouge Children will not have to go far to receive top of the line care. Dr. Dunbar says that kids are more likely to get better quicker if they have their family and a strong support system with them. He also talks about how this hospital is affiliated with St. Jude and it will contain a whole floor dedicated to St. Jude research, which means less children will have to go to Memphis for cancer treatment.
