This new clinic will be the second clinic of its type in the area and is also part of Ochsner Health System. This clinic will be in a space that used to be a pizza restaurant in Marrero. The project will require more than $2.8 million to convert the space. This is a perfect location because the median age is 40 and rising.
“We are providing more access to care by responding to when, where and how our patients need us,” said Dr. Kenny Cole, Ochsner’s vice president for clinical improvement. “This unique clinic … will provide participants with access to customized care to ensure they stay healthy and feel connected with resources dedicated to them, including multidisciplinary care teams, fitness coaching and community events.”
The clinic is a 65 plus clinic that will have
physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, a pharmacist, nurse care managers, social workers, dietitians, health coach, fitness instructors and physical therapist. Currently there are Ochsner 65 Plus clinics in Covington, Baton Rouge and Pensacola, Florida, and are under construction at 7060 Veterans Memorial Blvd. in Metairie and near Hilton Head, South Carolina.
