New Healthcare Choices Now Available on the Northshore Our Lady of the Lake Physician Group has grown, expanded and refreshed patient care services in Slidell. In early January, the Our Lady of the Lake Physician Goup opened new offices inside the Fremaux Medical Office Building at 1810 Lindberg Drive, Suite 1100, conveniently located near the Fremaux Town Center and I-10. Primary care and specialist providers offer a wide array of healthcare services, including rapid COVID-19 testing, sameday access to care, and on-site lab and x-ray services. Other services include preventive medicine, acute illness care, major injury treatment, wellness visits, physical exams, school and sports physicals and chronic disease management. The primary care clinic is located on the first floor of the building with 10,000 square feet of space and 21 exam rooms. The new facility has 60,000 square feet of space on three floors and was designed to accommodate future population growth as well.

Our Lady of the Lake is part of the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System. For the past seven years, the health system has grown its Northshore region clinical network which today serves St. Tammany and Washington parishes. The health system’s Northshore region has 20 primary care providers, nearly two dozen specialists and three pediatricians and support staff who perform more than 70,000 clinic visits each year. Additionally, Our Lady of the Angels Hospital in Bogalusa employs more than 500 team members and is the center of a rural family medicine residency program that provides training for 18 LSU medical school resident physicians. Now, you have more healthcare choices than ever before.

What’s more, next door to the new medical office building is the new Our Lady of the Lake Surgical Hospital, which provides outpatient surgical care, connecting you to seamless service. “We are proud to offer comprehensive health and medical services in the Slidell community,” said Rene Ragas, Northshore region president. “We’re committed to providing convenient faith-based care for Northshore residents when and where they need it.”
