Ochsner Continues Expanding Healthcare
with Jan. 5 Opening of a New Health Center in Frost

BATON ROUGE – Annual visits to a primary care physician are crucial for personal healthcare. Primary care physicians coordinate care and steer patients to appropriate screenings, provide referrals to specialists and keep health and wellness efforts on track. Annual visits with a primary care physician are vital to one’s health journey.
In its ongoing effort to improve access to primary care in underserved areas throughout the region, Ochsner Baton Rouge will open Ochsner Health Center – Livingston on Wednesday, Jan. 5. This location, just off Interstate-12 in Frost, is almost exactly halfway between Ochsner Health Center – Denham Springs South and Ochsner Health Center – Tangipahoa (Hammond).
OHC – Livingston meets a critical need for primary care services in Livingston Parish. This site, at 29437 S Frost Road, was previously occupied by RKM Primary Care. Ochsner invested $475,000 on renovating and upgrading the facility. It features eight exam rooms and approximately 4,000 square feet of space.
In addition to seeing patients in Hammond, Dr. Kaci Watts will treat patients at this new location with support from Dr. Courtney Royal. OHC – Livingston is connected to the Ochsner Health network and its EPIC electronic medical record system. This ensures patients can receive seamless care and be referred to the appropriate specialty care without the need to duplicate testing.
“Our new Livingston clinic fills a critical area of patient need, and it’s part of our aggressive plan to increase services throughout the region,” said Chuck Daigle, CEO, Ochsner Baton Rouge. “We continue to evaluate all opportunities to expand – from Plaquemine to Hammond, Zachary to Gonzales, and everywhere in between.”
To schedule an appointment, call (225) 761-5200, or visit to schedule online. Online appointments are also available through the MyOchsner patient portal.
