Baton Rouge General is opening up a neighborhood hospital in Prairieville.
The health system has announced plans for a $30 million, 10-bed medical center to go up in the suburban Ascension Parish community. The new facility will be built at LA 73 and I-10.
“Last year, thousands of Ascension residents drove into Baton Rouge to visit Baton Rouge General,” said BRG President and CEO Edgardo Tenreiro. “Our new neighborhood hospital will make it more convenient for Ascension Parish families to get the care they trust closer to home. The smaller campus will make navigating the hospital faster and easier, while the BRG name means patients will receive the same safe and high quality care they receive at our other facilities.”
Construction is expected to start early next year with a grand opening planned for 2019.
