South Louisiana Community College (SoLAcc) celebrates the completion of its ambitious "Legacy of Caring in the Home and Community" project with the unveiling of the final Home Health Training Lab on the Crowley campus. The cutting-edge lab is the result of a collaboration between the college, LHC Group and the Myers Family Foundation. The project was jumpstarted with a $2.5 million donation and was aimed at preparing the next generation of professionals for the dynamic field of home healthcare.

The Crowley Home Health Training Lab follows the successful openings of similar state-of-the-art facilities across SoLAcc's campuses in Lafayette, Abbeville, Ville Platte, Morgan City, St. Martinville, and Opelousas. The collaborative effort, initiated in 2020, has significantly impacted healthcare education by providing immersive training environments for students pursuing careers in home health.

Dr. Vincent June, SoLAcc’s Chancellor, expressed his excitement about the completion of the project, stating, "The Crowley Home Health Training Lab is the crowning achievement of our 'Legacy of Caring' initiative. This state-of-the-art facility symbolizes our commitment to delivering high-quality education and training in the healthcare sector. As we continue to work alongside our partners, LHC Group and the Myers Family Foundation, we are confident that this lab will empower our students with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in the growing field of home healthcare."

The Home Health Training Lab in Crowley replicates a realistic home care setting, complete with an advanced computerized simulation mannequin that mimics various clinical scenarios. This immersive environment allows SoLAcc’s healthcare students to gain hands-on experience and practice essential skills in a safe and controlled space before entering real-world healthcare settings.

The "Legacy of Caring" project, spanning five years, has not only resulted in the establishment of these cutting-edge labs but has also created a substantial scholarship program for healthcare students, introduced a home health credential, provided training opportunities for SoLAcc's healthcare faculty, and established endowed professorships to support the recruitment and retention of exemplary nursing faculty. As the final piece of the "Legacy of Caring" project, the Home Health Lab on Crowley solidifies SoLAcc's commitment to addressing the growing demand for skilled professionals in the healthcare industry.
