Louisiana Imaging Professionals Making A Difference
The LSRT Recognizes – The Baton Rouge Clinic
In 1946, the idea of a group practice, especially a multispecialty practice was a new idea at the time. However, 4 physicians returning from WWII formed the Baton Rouge Clinic at it’s first location of 2221 Plank Road above the Pig and Whistle Restaurant. Over the years, they have grown to over 110 board certified physicians offering a large range of top quality health care services for the entire family – from infant to geriatrics. There are multiple ranges of specialized clinical services such as neurology, surgical services, dermatology, gastrology, endocrinology, and rheumatology to name a few. The Baton Rouge Clinic houses one of the area’s largest internal medicine and pediatric departments.
The BRC is committed to providing their patients with the latest of medical technology with ACR accredited and state of the art equipment. They have a state of the art Laboratory with on site testing and along with a Radiology Department which performs approximately 300 digital procedures daily including Mammography, CT, MRI, Sonography, Densitometry, Fluoroscopy and Conventional Radiology Monday through Friday. The Baton Rouge Clinic Urgent Care offers emergency after hours care along with Convention Radiology nights and weekends.
A large number of employees participate in numerous community based fundraisers such as United Way, Capital Area Heart Walk, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Employee Weight Loss Challenge, Jambalaya Sales benefiting St. Vincent DePaul Community Pharmacy as part of the Fill a Prescription Campaign, Toys for Tots and Feed the Family Food Drive. The BRC has over 600 employees and holds an Employee Recognition Ceremony each year for individuals who have 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 + years of service. They are proud that so many employees have found long-term careers at a facility that offers quality medical care at a “one stop shop” facility serving the Baton Rouge area and beyond for 70 years! 1946,
