LSU Student Health Center and OLOL Health
LSU and Our Lady of the Lake Health are teaming up to develop a first-of-its-kind, long-term, healthcare-focused partnership that combines our resources, personnel, and efforts to bring about positive change for Baton Rouge and all of Louisiana.
Focusing on healthcare delivery, research, and education, the partnership aims to improve the health and well-being of the LSU population and our community by supporting athletic excellence, fostering research to stimulate economic growth and development, and transforming healthcare and education for the future.
Born from this partnership is the collaborative of the LSU Student Health Center. Focused on "whole student health," the partnership continues to offer students access to comprehensive and inclusive healthcare services that meet their needs and fully address their healthcare concerns. Through this partnership, Our Lady of the Lake is providing services for the Medical Clinic and Mental Health Service, while LSU is continuing to manage the Gynecology (GYN) Clinic, Wellness and Health Promotion, and the Lighthouse Program.
Patients at the Student Health Center can anticipate continued access to the high-quality, inclusive health care they have come to rely on, and all providers and staff will continue to serve in their current roles.
Additionally, the LSU Student Health Center is expanding and enhancing certain services and treatment options to ensure that every LSU student has access to premier, holistic healthcare services whether on campus or in the community. Some of these enhanced services include:
- Increased financial assistance for uninsured and underinsured students.
- Prescription deliveries to residence halls and off-campus housing for students who are unable to access a community pharmacy.
- Expanded access to telehealth with after-hours and weekend availability.
- Access to a free 24/7 nurse advice line in Lakeline Direct.
- An integrated and personal electronic health record that will follow a student beyond their time at LSU.
With a wide-ranging network of medical and mental health providers and specialists and investments in the end-to-end healthcare experience, the LSU Student Health Center and Our Lady of the Lake Health are providing the resources and education to empower students to take ownership of their health and wellness — preparing them for a lifetime of improved health. We envision the entire LSU community at optimal wellness, and that goal starts with student health.
