Renderings of New Iberville Medical Facility
September 25, 2012
Iberville Parish President J. Mitchell Ourso, Jr. has released renderings of the new medical complex that will be built on LA Highway 1 in south Plaquemine. The facility will be operated by Ochsner Health System and will feature a free-standing emergency department and full service Ochsner health center providing primary care and specialty services.
“The drawings will be completed in November, and we expect to go out for bids on the project in December,” said Ourso. “We are looking forward to construction beginning in February 2013, and have a projected completion date of the first quarter of 2014.
The nearly 40,000 square foot facility’s emergency department will feature 24 patient exam/procedure rooms including two trauma rooms equipped to handle a range of emergencies. Ochsner’s unique Q-track system, which is used in all Ochsner emergency rooms, will be used to move patients through the emergency department faster.
