Ochsner Baptist Opens ER and Clara Wing
Date:1/12/2009

Uptown New Orleans Campus Opens Community ER, Expanded ICU, and All-Private Hospital Wing

NEW ORLEANS, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- At a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10:00am on Monday, January 12, 2009, DHH Secretary Alan Levine and New Orleans City Councilwoman Stacy Head will join Ochsner Baptist Medical Center and the community to celebrate the opening of its full-service Emergency Room and a 43 all-private room hospital wing at 2700 Napoleon Avenue in Uptown New Orleans. This additional $12 million investment includes expanding the Ochsner Baptist ICU from three to 12 beds and is in addition to the more than $20 million to re-open 22 medical/surgical beds, two endoscopy suites and the Imaging Center in 2006 and 2007. Following guided tours, the ER will officially open for patient care at 11:00am. Emergency services have not been available at the Ochsner Baptist campus since Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

"With local ERs still plagued with frequent overcrowding and diversion problems, Ochsner Baptist's services will fill a significant need and provide residents with a new, full-service ER closer to home," explains Robert Wolterman, Chief Executive Officer at Baptist. The 6,000-square-foot ER includes two trauma rooms, nine exam rooms, one triage room, an electronic medical records system, and computerized patient tracking for fast door-to-doctor care and quicker treatment.

"Another advantage to the Ochsner Baptist ER is our on-campus, comprehensive Imaging Center. In an emergency situation, an X-ray, ultrasound, CT or MRI are crucial to proper care and diagnoses," explains Dr. Joe Guarisco, Ochsner Systems Chief of Emergency Services. Opened in November 2007, Ochsner Imaging includes a 64-slice CT machine, MRI, Ultrasound, Radiography, Fluoroscopy, Digital Mammography, Nuclear Medicine and Echo Cardiology testing.

"We expect to average approximately 40 to 45 visits pe
