Ochsner’s Brings Snow for Opening of Sullivan Clinic

CENTRAL — More than 50 Central kids enjoyed playing in the snow Saturday at the Grand Opening of Ochsner Health Center Central, 11424 Sullivan Road.

The $2.2 million facility offers a number of specialties, including internal medicine, neurology, gastroenterology, cardiology, and pediatrics.  Central resident Dr. Keith Holmes is one of the Ochsner physicians who practices at the clinic.

On Saturday, it was all fun and excitement, as more than 350 local residents toured the facilities and ate hot dogs and snacks.

The kids gathered around the two tons of snow provided by Sno-mobile (phone 262-1799).  The young people ran a gauntlet as others walloped them with snowballs.  Then a snowball fight ensued!

The 7,500-square-foot facility includes 12 examination rooms and offers Electronic Medical Records, which most health facilities may eventually be mandated to offer.

The clinic also offers imaging services, including X-ray.

Participants in the Grand Opening also got to visit with Santa Claus and write letters to Santa.

The Central Fire Department and Acadian Ambulance had units on duty for tours and to take care of any emergency.

Ochsner Health Care Center Central is accepting appointments.  The number is 261-9790.

Sno-mobile offers snow for parties and other events year-round.  Owner Sue Muller can be reached at 262-1799 or by email at suemuller@cox.net.
