Our Lady of the Lake Physician Group Launches Facility Expansion for Primary Care for Women Clinic in Baton Rouge

January 03, 2022

BATON ROUGE, LA – Our Lady of the Lake Physician Group has announced that demolition has begun in the facility expansion and renovation of the Primary Care for Women Clinic located at 5131 O’Donovan Drive. The clinic, dedicated to providing a full spectrum of healthcare services for women ages 18 and older, will be reconstructed across the hall from its current location.

Primary Care for Women is a unique healthcare setting that offers physical, mental and spiritual rejuvenation to female patients living in our community. The facility features an array of specialized services that are provided in a comfortable, spa-like environment. Primary Care for Women serves as a convenient one-stop-shop for healthcare services that include: comprehensive physical exams, evaluation and care of chronic illnesses, gynecology services, well woman visits, breast cancer screenings, executive woman’s wellness, nutritional and dietary services, and cardiovascular screenings.

As the Primary Care for Women continues to grow and expand services, the clinic expansion will provide increased space for additional providers. Female patients in our community will have even greater access to some of our region’s most experienced, high-quality providers. Clinic providers include:

“We couldn’t be more excited to get this renovation project started,” said James Craven, MD, President of Our Lady of the Lake Physician Group. “As with every project we take on at Our Lady of the Lake Physician Group, our plans are always developed with our patients’ needs top-of-mind. The women living in our community deserve the very best when it comes to patient care and service. Our renovated clinic will allow for more specialized services, more providers and more of the exceptional care our patients have come to expect.”

This facility expansion is only the latest strategic move announced by Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System and Our Lady of the Lake Physician Group. Whether expanding access to primary care and specialized services or leading the development of innovative cancer treatment, the health system continues to push the envelope when it comes to serving the health needs of communities across the Gulf South.

“As one of the largest private medical organizations in Louisiana, we understand the important role our health system plays in serving patients across our state,” said Richard Vath, President and CEO of Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System. “Part of this role includes our responsibility to ensure patients in our community have access to equitable, high-quality healthcare. Our Primary Care for Women Clinic does just that. Through preventive screenings, primary care and specialized services, our providers are literally saving lives and improving the state of women’s health in our community. With this additional space, we’ll have the opportunity to build on our success and serve even more women in need of care.”
