Jindal touts LSU deals as urgent care clinic opens

Posted: Updated:

A new LSU urgent care clinic has opened in north Baton Rouge, managed by a local private hospital as part of Gov. Bobby Jindal's efforts to outsource university system health facilities.

Jindal used the ribbon-cutting Tuesday to highlight the privatization efforts, which he said have improved services for people who rely on the LSU network of hospitals and clinics for care.

LSU's hospital in Baton Rouge, Earl K. Long Medical Center, was shuttered in April. Most of its services were shifted to Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center. The new LSU urgent care clinic in the city also is run by Our Lady of the Lake.

The clinic replaces a temporary location and treats walk-in patients for non-emergency needs, like broken bones, minor injuries and flu-like symptoms.
