Children’s Hospital New Orleans and Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Health agreed to partner this week to provide greater access to pediatric cardiovascular surgical health care, OLOL announced.
The two hospitals plan to expand access to specialized pediatric cardiovascular treatment in Baton Rouge and across the state by forming a medical care delivery network. Negotiations for the partnership are still ongoing.
OLOL Children’s Health, along with affiliated physician partners across Louisiana, currently provides pediatric cardiology services throughout hospitals and satellite clinics in Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Monroe, St. Francisville and Hammond.
In October, OLOL Children’s Health will open its children’s hospital in Baton Rouge, and the partnership with the New Orleans hospital and its physicians will enable the hospital to provide more specialized treatment. The Children’s Hospital New Orleans Heart Center has grown in recent months, including the recent recruitment of four pediatric specialists. Read the full announcement.
