Chalmette, La. – SouthStar Urgent Care opened its 31st Louisiana clinic on January 5, 2023. The new clinic at 8400 W. Judge Perez Drive in Chalmette, La. expands access to patient-centered care in the southeast part of the state and offers comprehensive urgent care services from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends.
“When people are sick or injured, they want to feel better as quickly as possible,” said Lori Labat, practice supervisor of the Chalmette SouthStar Urgent Care. “For our neighbors in Chalmette and the surrounding area, this new clinic is conveniently located to provide faster access to the high-quality, personalized care that has made SouthStar one of the most trusted and highly rated urgent care providers in the state.”
Like all SouthStar locations, the Chalmette clinic treats a wide range of illnesses and injuries such as sprains and strains, minor cuts, fractures, rashes and more. It also provides on-site imaging and diagnostics, including X-rays, electrocardiograms and Covid-19 and flu testing.
Such services fill a critical gap between the preventive medicine and chronic condition management handled in the primary care setting and the crisis response offered by emergency departments, according to Jim Ashby, CEO of Community Care Partners, the parent company of SouthStar Urgent Care.
“Our goal is to keep people out of the hospital by giving them the care they need, when and where they need it,” Ashby added. “With caring, knowledgeable providers, friendly and efficient staff, and extended hours every day of the week, SouthStar is able to consistently achieve this while delivering an exceptional patient experience.”
SouthStar Urgent Care offers care on a walk-in basis, or people may get in line online to reduce their wait times.
