« Return


St.  James Parish Hospital is extremely excited to announce the 2016 opening of the area’s first local Urgent Care which will operate within David Reynaud Medical Plaza located next to St. James Parish Hospital. 

St. James Urgent Care will be open from 5:00pm to 10:00pm Monday through Friday. Patients will be able to conveniently walk-in, see a licensed practitioner and have access to on-the-spot testing and treatment for urgent, non-life threatening medical needs.    

“As a working mother, I am thrilled to have the peace of mind that if my child needs care after hours—which we know always seems to happen—we can now jump in the car and have access to this service locally,” said Danielle Martin LeBlanc, local patient.    

St. James Parish Hospital has consistently provided quality emergency care to the community for over 60 years. As healthcare has evolved, the need for after-hours coverage for urgent, more common issues has grown. The leaders at St. James Parish Hospital have worked diligently to bring this new level of service home to you.  

“Our objective is to keep patients local and provide an alternative to those needing services outside of our clinic hours.  We are excited about this opportunity to offer additional services to our community,” said Mary Ellen Pratt, CEO. 

An official opening date will be announced via this website, the hospital's Facebook Page and through local advertising. Upon opening, St. James Urgent Care will be located at 1731 Lutcher Avenue and the phone number will be 225.258.2040.
