The actual hospital is not in Monroe Louisiana but in California. This same hospital has been used in many films and TV shows. Criminal Minds is filming at the same location once True Blood finishes their filming.
The filming was all interior shots. We could see many extras on set in hospital garb-doctors, nurses, patients and paramedics were on hand.
The real heros of the show who put together all the gear and sets that make the magic for fans (here shown assembling a gurney):

So now the big question is which True Blood character is in need of “healing” this time for season 5? Waiting sucks! Yes I have a pretty good idea of who is the patient but do not wish to ruin it for fans. Waiting sucks!
The gallery below has the rest of the photos I was able to get from the location.
