Our Lady of Lourdes held a groundbreaking for their new emergency center in Scott.
Lourdes says the center is a $9 million community investment and will provide quick access to emergency services along the I-10 corridor.
“This is an exciting day for our health system to announce the addition of the Our Lady of Lourdes Emergency Center to our healthcare ministry,” said Bryan Lee, CEO and President, Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Hospital. “Next year, this emergency center will serve as an invaluable resource providing critical care access to the 108,000 households within a 12-mile radius of this very location in Scott.”
The 13,307-square-foot facility will open in the summer of 2019 and will include a 9-bed ER, outpatient imaging with ultrasound, x-ray, CT and lab functionality. Functioning 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, the center will be staffed with board-certified emergency physicians and clinical team members able to provide the same care they would receive in a hospital emergency room, a release states.
“The new center in Scott will provide the same high-quality care as Lourdes Hospital Emergency Room on Ambassador Caffery, staffed with the best in the business and offering leading emergency care to the community we are called to serve,” continued Lee.
The project is being built by The Lemoine Company and was designed by WHLC Architects. The emergency center in Scott joins the Our Lady of Lourdes Main Campus, Heart Hospital of Lafayette locations, providing full-scale emergency care as well as minor emergent care at the four Lourdes Urgent Care clinics in Lafayette, Carencro, Breaux Bridge and Broussard.
