Construction at Iberville Hospital is nearing 30 percent completion

In Plaquemine, Louisiana, new construction is reaching 30 percent completion on Iberville Parish’s $20 million facility.  Parish officials remain confident locals can look forward to obtaining necessary medical care by winter of 2014.

Construction on the 43,000 square-foot facility began last June on a 27-acre site, near La. 1 in south Plaquelamine, according to the Advocate (http://bit.ly/1bKqyrw).

Ochsner Health System will operate the new facility.  It will include twenty-four patient exam & procedure rooms including 2 trauma rooms, lab/radiology services which will include mammography, X-ray, MRI, CAT scan and ultrasound.

Hurricane Gustav forced closure of the pre-existing facility at River West Medical Center (due do severe damage), leaving residents of the parish without hospital services since 2008.
