Delgado Wants To Move Its Nursing, Allied Health Schools Into Old Charity

Delgado Community College Chancellor Monty Sullivan says the college has talked with the city of New Orleans about moving its Charity School of Nursing and School of Allied Health into the former Charity Hospital building.

Delgado hopes to triple the size of its nursing school to meet the demand for nurses that the new University Medical Center and Veterans Affairs Medical Center will generate when they come online in 2015 and 2016.

The Advocate reports Delgado's interest comes as Mayor Mitch Landrieu, who has proposed moving City Hall and Civil District Court into Charity, remains at odds with the court's judges.

They would rather build their own courthouse near the current City Hall.
