NEW ORLEANS – Ochsner Health Center – Belle Meade, located at 605 Lapalco Boulevard in Gretna, held a grand opening community event and hosted tours of their new clinic on Saturday, January 14. This new clinic location provides an additional access point to the West Bank community for Primary Care and Physical Therapy services.

“Opening this new location increases healthcare access for the West Bank community and its residents,” said Anthony DiGerolamo, Chief Executive Officer, Ochsner Medical Center – West Bank Campus. “We now offer six locations on the West Bank, each offering the highest level of quality care.”

Patients of the Ochsner Health Center – Belle Meade, and all patients throughout the Ochsner system, have access to MyOchsner, a secure online tool that allows patients to communicate with physicians, schedule online appointments, view lab and imaging results, prescription refills and more. In addition, Ochsner physicians use Epic as their electronic medical record system. That means no matter which Ochsner facility a patient chooses to visit, the medical staff at that facility will have full access to the patient’s medical record, ensuring the highest quality of care.

“This new clinic is yet another example of Ochsner’s commitment to providing healthcare options in this region,” said DiGerolamo. “With five clinics, the recently acquired MHM Urgent Care locations, the new Ochsner Emergency Room location in Marrero and Emergency Room expansion at Ochsner Medical Center – West Bank Campus, West Bank residents can receive high quality care close to home. “
