Lafayette General Foundation announces the public launch of La Place de Vie - a courtyard to be constructed at Lafayette General Medical Center (LGMC), paying homage to its patients and patrons.
Located just off the main entrance of LGMC, La Place de Vie will serve as a peaceful sitting area for patients, family members and visitors. The area will feature a unique metal sculpture of an oak tree adorned with dedication plaques. These personalized plaques can now be purchased in memory of a special person or persons. Personalized La Place de Vie benches, bricks and pavers can also be purchased by patrons.
"La Place de Vie creates an opportunity for residents of Acadiana to share celebrations, like the birth of a child, to memorialize a family's history with LGMC or to honor the memories of past patients," says Geoff Daily, Lafayette General Foundation Executive Director. The courtyard will also offer visitors the opportunity to share in special flag-raising ceremonies held routinely at LGMC, including those honoring organ donors and their families.
Proceeds raised through La Place de Vie support the growth of the mission of Lafayette General Health: "To Restore, Maintain and Improve Health." Lafayette General Health is Acadiana's only community-owned, not-for-profit health system.
Daily says engravings will be installed two times per year. To be a part of the first dedication installations, your purchase must be made by July 31. Persons making these first donations will be invited to a special opening event in the Fall.
