Daily Report readers are split on what they would like to see Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center do with a tract of land it bought along Interstate 10. Thirty-five percent of the people who responded to an online survey say the new LSU teaching hospital should be built on the site between Essen Lane and Bluebonnet Boulevard, while 31% think OLOL should build a children’s hospital there. Fifteen percent were undecided, while 10% say a mixed-use medical development should be built on the land and 9% would like to see Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center expand on the property. Nearly 1,000 people participated in the survey. OLOL paid $15.25 million for the 58-acre site in a deal that closed just before the end of the year; hospital officials say they have no plans for the property at the time.
