Our Lady of the Lake Northshore held a groundbreaking celebration for its new Our Lady of the Lake Physician Group Money Hill Walk-In Clinic. This innovative new ambulatory clinic will offer traditional primary care as well as seven day-a-week, walk-in access to hundreds of St. Tammany Parish families across the Waldheim-Bush community. The clinic is scheduled to open in early 2023.
“Access and affordability. Shouldn’t that be what healthcare is all about? At Our Lady of the Lake and the Franciscan Missionaries of our Lady Health System, we think so. And we are committed to providing convenient access to high-quality healthcare at an affordable cost, along with a one-of-a-kind patient experience,” said Bryan Miller, MD, physician executive, interim Northshore Market president, Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System (FMOLHS).
The new 5,034 square foot clinic with its seven exam rooms will offer urgent care convenience at a primary care cost. Located adjacent to Money Hill’s Highway 21 entrance, the clinic is slated to be the first tenant in the new commercial development, The Village at Money Hill.
In the tradition of their Catholic healthcare ministry, Our Lady of the Lake always leads with their faith. They invited Deacon Edward Kelley, Annunciation Catholic Church, to offer prayer and blessing over the construction site.
