University Hospital Interim Trauma Center, New Orleans, LA
DMS assisted the Louisiana State University’s Health Care Sciences Division (LSU-HCSD) in collaboration with FEMA, with the development of a disaster recovery plan in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina (2005). DMS determined that an interim solution was needed to restore critical healthcare services, while protecting the health and safety of the citizens of the community. DMS was instrumental in procuring $90 million in FEMA funding to renovate the temporary healthcare services facility. In less than a year, plans were designed, the facility was funded, built and open for business.
