Ochsner Baton Rouge has begun construction of Ochsner Health Center – Gonzales, a new clinic at the intersection of La. 30 and South Burnside Avenue (La. 44). Scheduled to open in the summer of 2022, the clinic will offer both primary and specialty care. The total project cost is $24.2 million.
The two-story building will provide 51,600 square feet of space, including 18 exam rooms, a laboratory, and a full radiology suite with MRI. It complements Ochsner’s existing facilities in Ascension Parish: Ochsner Health Center – Prairieville, Ochsner Urgent Care – Lagniappe Center on Airline Highway, and Ochsner Therapy & Wellness – Gonzales on North Burnside Avenue near Cannon Road.
Grace Hebert Curtis Architects and The Lemoine Company are the design team and general contractor, respectively.
“Our new clinic in Gonzales is a crucial part of Ochsner’s commitment to patients in the Greater Baton Rouge area,” said Eric McMillen, CEO, Ochsner Baton Rouge. “Gonzales is a major population center with a growing need for the primary and specialty care we offer.”
