The cutting-edge facility on Highway 23 in Port Sulphur features a heliport, CAT scan machine and digital X-ray machine and is home to a full service pharmacy and lab, plus offers physical therapy and eye and hearing exams. To serve members of the oil and gas industry, the center also has a decontamination unit.


New Procedure for Chronic Back, Hip and Knee Pain
Ochsner Baptist now provides a new, non-invasive outpatient option for patients with chronic back, hip or knee pain called COOLIEF Cooled Radiofrequency Treatment. The procedure eliminates the need to use heat therapy, focusing cooled radiofrequency energy on the sensory nerves causing discomfort to relieve pain lasting for more than three months and can reduce the need for over-the-counter medications, such as ibuprofen and aspirin, steroid injections and physical therapy. For more information, visit Ochsner.org/PainManagement.
