PRAIRIEVILLE, La. - Baton Rouge General’s (BRG) new hospital and emergency room will soon be open in Ascension Parish.

The new (BRG) features a 14-bed emergency room and ten additional inpatient beds. The facility was designed around making it seamless for patients to get into a room without having to wait. The self-rooming concept takes away all the paperwork, and makes it easier for nurses and doctors to help patients right away.

There’s also equipment for physical therapy, as well as imaging and lab services.

“We expect that we’re able to get our patients very quickly back to our rooms. That’s our number one goal is to be able to get our patients directly back to rooms so that the care team can meet the patient in the room. So a lot of things will happen right there at the bedside, including their intake. They’ll get to meet their patient caretaker team really on arrival to the facility,” said Marsha Bond, emergency department director for BRG.

The primary care clinic officially opens its doors Monday, Oct. 12 and is located near I-10 on Highway 73 in Prairieville.
