Manning, in joint venture with Mackey Mitchell, is designing the new Ochsner Center for Nursing and Allied Health on Delgado Community College’s City Park Campus. Ochsner Health and Delgado have partnered to train much-needed health professionals for Louisiana's workforce. Ochsner is providing funding for construction and for tuition for its employees who take advantage of the training.

The new facility will consolidate Delgado’s Nursing and Allied Health programs, alleviating the current inefficiencies of programs spread across numerous buildings on the City Park and Charity School of Nursing campuses. Many of the existing program spaces are undersized for current needs, limiting effectiveness and any opportunity for growth. The new building will provide next-generation facilities and technology for the next generation of nurses and allied health professionals, including classrooms, teaching labs, library, offices, conference and study rooms, and a virtual hospital floor.
