Care Close to Home
at Northshore Medical
With the 2019 opening of Northshore Medical Complex in Lacombe, Ochsner Health joined several partners to take a major step in providing needed medical services to the growing Northshore region.
Northshore Medical Complex represents an investment of $15 million over five years.
The facility, which houses services provided under partnership arrangements among Ochsner Health, St. Tammany Health System, Slidell Memorial Hospital, Select Medical and LHC Group, provides the opportunity to improve clinical coordination, allow more patients to receive care close to home and reduce the overall cost of healthcare. Northshore Medical Complex, which represents an investment of $15 million over five years, includes the 30-bed Northshore Rehabilitation Hospital and 58-bed Northshore Extended Care Hospital.
With longer life expectancies and improved treatments for patients with debilitating diseases, there is an increasing demand for post-acute care services. The new facility, the first of its kind in St. Tammany Parish, is a specialized destination care center for patients who upon discharge from the hospital require post-acute care. It’s an innovative approach to enhance continuity of care, patient satisfaction and quality outcomes.
Northshore Rehabilitation Hospital is operated by Select Medical and provides intensive rehabilitative care in an inpatient setting. The hospital is equipped with a state-of-the-art gym, an activities of daily living suite, and a training area — all of which help patients achieve their best outcomes when recovering from stroke, brain and spinal cord injuries, orthopedic conditions, neurological disorders, cancer and cardiac conditions.
Northshore Extended Care Hospital is designed to provide long-term acute care for the most critically ill patients, with services provided by LHC Group, a leading national provider of post-acute healthcare services in 37 states.
