If you have questions about North Oaks or the future of health care in Louisiana, make plans to attend the health system’s town hall forum Wednesday, Oct. 11, from 5:30-7 p.m. Hosted by the North Oaks Board of Commissioners and President/Chief Executive Officer Michele Sutton, the forum will take place in the E. Brent Dufreche Conference Center, located within North Oaks Diagnostic Center at 15837 Paul Vega, MD, Drive in Hammond. While registration is not required, seating is limited.

Since assuming the role of president and chief executive officer in January 2017, Sutton has encouraged open collaboration and communication with the community. In this spirit, Sutton plans to provide a brief update on new physicians and services, as well as information on the health system’s new Council of Patient and Family Advisors.

The majority of the forum, however, will be dedicated to answering questions from the floor, as well as questions emailed in advance to or mailed to CEO Feedback, P.O. Box 2668, Hammond, LA 70404.

“We want to know what’s important to our friends and neighbors,” Sutton explains. “All questions are welcome, with the exception of those pertaining to specific patient care or billing issues. Those will be addressed privately to protect confidentiality.”

After the forum, all questions and answers will be posted to

This is the second of two town hall forums scheduled for 2017. The first forum was held May 10, 2017.
