Ribbon Cutting Held for North Oaks Pediatric Specialty Clinic

North Oaks Health System and Children’s Hospital New Orleans celebrated the opening of North Oaks Pediatric Specialty Clinic on Friday, March 15, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The clinic opening builds upon North Oaks and Children’s Hospital’s existing relationship to enhance access to pediatric specialty care and improve health outcomes.

Adjacent to North Oaks Medical Center, the clinic is located at 15742 Medical Arts Dr. in the Medical Arts Plaza. In addition, North Oaks Pediatric Specialty Clinic encompasses 2,300 square feet and features six child-friendly examination rooms and an on-site laboratory.

“The opening of North Oaks Pediatric Specialty Clinic marks a significant step toward the shared vision of North Oaks and Children’s Hospital to provide exceptional pediatric care to infants and children. With a focus on convenience and family support, we are proud to bring top-notch pediatric subspecialty care closer to home for Northshore families,” asserts Michele Kidd Sutton, FACHE, president and CEO of North Oaks Health System. “This is an exciting new phase in our continued partnership to enhance access and improve health outcomes for the children in our community. Together, we are truly improving lives, every time and with every touch.”

North Oaks Pediatric Specialty Clinic will be staffed by highly skilled pediatric providers from Children’s Hospital. Planned subspecialty offerings include allergy and immunology, gastroenterology, neurology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, physical medicine and rehabilitation, plastic surgery and urology.

Additionally, some of these pediatric subspecialists will perform surgeries at North Oaks Medical Center and North Oaks Surgery Center. They will be supported by a team of nurses, scrub techs, anesthesiologists and certified registered nurse anesthetists who specialize in delivering care to infants and children.

“Bringing care close to home for communities across Louisiana is an important part of our vision to build a healthier future for children,” affirms Lucio A. Fragoso, president and CEO of Children’s Hospital New Orleans. “We are proud to be expanding upon our partnership with North Oaks Health System through the opening of the new Pediatric Specialty Clinic, which will mean increasing important access to pediatric specialists for children and families of Tangipahoa Parish and beyond.”

Children’s also will continue to provide neonatology, pediatric hospital medicine and pediatric cardiology coverage for the Neonatal Intensive Care and Pediatric units at North Oaks Medical Center.
