Ochsner Moves Women’s Services to Baptist Hospital in New Orleans

baptistThe NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune reports that Ochsner Health System plans to move its primary women’s health services, including labor and delivery, from its main campus on Jefferson Highway to its Baptist hospital in Uptown New Orleans. The $40 million project will reopen floors that haven’t been in use since Ochsner purchased the hospital in 2006 from Tenet Healthcare Corp. Construction is underway at Baptist hospital on Napoleon Avenue, with the new center expected to be open by the end of this year.

Ochsner reports that shifting labor and delivery would open up 100 more beds at the Ochsner Medical Center main campus, which is currently at capacity.
