Tree of Life/ Scholarship Program

The Volunteers unveiled the Tree of Life, which is located in the main lobby of the hospital, on February 29, 1996. The leaves on the tree represent donations in memory of a deceased loved one or to honor the living.
Donations from the Tree of Life are dedicated to a Scholarship Program for college students enrolled in a healthcare-related curriculum.

  • Lived in Vermilion Parish for a period of two (2) consecutive years,
