As emergency rooms across the country have filled with people infected with the flu virus, Ochsner Baton Rouge now has extended hours with no appointments necessary at two urgent care centers in the Baton Rouge region.
These clinics offer an alternative to an emergency room visit, which is traditionally reserved for serious, life-threatening medical emergencies, or a visit with your primary care physician who may not be available to see you the same day.
1) 10 am - 10 pm, Monday through Friday at the Ochsner Health Center – Prairieville Urgent Care Clinic, located at 16220 Airline Highway.
2) 8 am - 8 pm, Monday - Friday and 8 am - 1 pm, Saturdays at Ochsner Health Center on Summa Avenue, right off Bluebonnet, across from the Mall of Louisiana.
Ochsner Urgent Care centers are fully equipped with on-site laboratories and imaging services.
“Our Urgent Care locations are ideal for people needing to see a healthcare provider immediately for conditions such as orthopedic injuries or upper/lower respiratory infections,” says Rubin Patel, MD – Ochsner Baton Rouge’s Urgent Care Director.
