“Ochsner offers convenient access to a wide array of services all across the Baton Rouge region,” said Chuck Daigle, CEO, Ochsner Baton Rouge.  “The list of locations we have is expansive and we continue to add new health clinics, urgent care centers and therapy facilities. Patients can also get care from their smartphone using Ochsner Anywhere Care.”

Other urgent care locations include Ochsner Urgent Care – Arlington Marketplace (650 Arlington Creek Centre Drive, Suite E), Ochsner Urgent Care and Occupational Health – Highland Park (18303 Old Perkins Road East, Suite 304) and Ochsner Urgent Care – Lagniappe Center (14601 Airline Hwy, Suite 103, Gonzales).

Like other Ochsner locations, this new urgent care facility connects patients to the entire Ochsner Health network through Epic – Ochsner’s integrated electronic medical record system.  Ochsner physicians can quickly and securely access any past medical information and share results with other Ochsner medical providers.  This reduces the need for repeat testing, saving patients time and money.
