Ochsner is excited to provide additional health care services to our neighbors in Iberville Parish. We are working with Iberville Parish to build a medical complex, which will feature an emergency room open 24/7 and a full service Ochsner health center open Monday - Friday, from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., on LA Highway 1, at Senator Gay Boulevard, in south Plaquemine.
The nearly 40,000 square foot facility’s emergency department will feature 24 patient exam/procedure rooms including two trauma rooms equipped to handle a range of emergencies.
The adjoining health center will have patients appointments available for Primary Care, Cardiology and OB/GYN visits.
Other features include:
- 22 patient exam rooms
- Lab services, including Cardiology testing
- Radiology services including x-ray, CT scan, MRI, ultrasound and mammography
Dawn Pevey, Chief Nursing Officer and Chief Operating Officer for Ochsner Baton Rouge says that "the building construction is on target to be completed by September 2014. Although construction schedules are difficult to predict, Ochsner leadership expects to finish move-in and open for patients by December 1st, 2014."
