National Bio And Agro-Defense Facility: Draft Environmental Impact Statement
June 20, 2008

Operation of this biosafety level 3 (BSL-3) and BSL-4 research facility would enable basic and advanced research, diagnostic testing and validation, countermeasure development (i.e., vaccines and antiviral therapies), and diagnostic training for high-consequence livestock diseases with potentially devastating impacts to U.S. agriculture and public health.

Just two and a half years ago Lawrence Memorial Hospital broke ground for a three-phase, 165,000-square-foot $45 million campus expansion project. At times, construction has been disruptive, inconvenient and noisy for patients, staff, visitors and neighbors. But we knew we faced only temporary challenges and kept our focus on the future. Look at us now! As we approach the home stretch of the project, we reflect on our goal to create a first-class health care facility that supports physicians, nurses and other hospital staff in delivering the best and safest medical care for patients in our region.
