Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — The new 2,000 square foot Ochsner Health Clinic is now open and ready for patients.
This new clinic will provide health services to families in the area, and Ochsner officials say this new location will serve the community where it’s really needed.
"This is an area of town that we are not presently in,” stated CEO Eric McMillen. “That helps is expand our footprint in Baton Rouge and allows us to bring care closer to our patients.”
"Together with Ochsner, we are going to provide excellent care to the community," said pediatrician Dr. Andriette Finch.
This clinic is now one of seven in the Baton Rouge area. Ochsner hey plan to open a freestanding clinic in Iberville Parish in 2014.
