"The return of emergency services to the Broadmoor community is a huge step in our recovery process and will provide quality emergency care that's easily accessible to our families," says LaToya Cantrell, President of the Broadmoor Improvement Association.

Wolterman goes on to add, "The support of the medical staff and the community has been tremendous. And, patients will feel right at home with the ER in the same location as before and will see many of the same physicians at Baptist as they did pre-Katrina." Ochsner Baptist has consistently ranked in the top 95th percentile in patient satisfaction in Press Ganey scores.

Ochsner purchased the Baptist campus in October 2006 from Tenet Healthcare. "In such a short time, we've gone from a small surgical institution to a full-service facility capable of handling critical cases," says Wolterman. The Clara Wing's $8 million expansion brings the campus to 43 medical/surgical beds.

Wolterman promises, "As patient needs continue to increase and patient demand grows, we'll continue to grow." Current campus services now include an expanded 12-bed ICU, six operating rooms, two cardiac catheterization suites and endoscopy suites, an Outpatient Imaging Center, a Laser Vision Center, and over 300 community physicians.
