Baton Rouge General - Mid City

You don’t need to travel across town to get high quality care. Baton Rouge General’s Mid City campus features advanced, lifesaving technology and expert doctors and nurses ready to serve you and your family when you need help. From our 24/7 emergency room to cancer treatment, behavioral health, imaging, sleep center and rehab, Mid City has all the services you need to stay healthy.

Addressing Disparities

One of the most important issues in healthcare today is the disparities that exist in access, quality and outcomes. Baton Rouge General is committed to closing those gaps through new programs, training, and education. Our Family Medicine and Internal Medicine Residency programs continue to work towards that goal. With their passion, dedication and call to service, the featured physicians explain why they chose to work at the Mid City campus and why serving this community is so impactful.

Our Commitment to Mid City

Plans for a new front entrance of the hospital will add green space and make the hospital even more a part of the community. Our vision includes removing the fence and staff parking lot facing Florida Boulevard, and opening up a large park-like space with a plaza and seating. The new area could also host future events like our Pop-up Pink Pumpkin Patch, screening events and Holiday Lights display, as well as other community-driven events in Mid City.

Give to Mid City

Part of the one-year anniversary is the announcement of a new initiative from the Baton Rouge General Foundation that addresses health inequality and barriers to care among the hospital’s patient base at Mid City. The CARE Initiative (Community, Access, Resources, and Education) tackles some of the most common issues keeping patients from achieving full health, including transportation, medical equipment, and food insecurity. Many patients struggle to even get to the hospital for radiation or other important visits, and 20% of those who leave our skilled nursing unit need an at-home handicap ramp but can’t afford one. After a short application and CARE committee review, patients can be granted up to $500 in assistance.

We have cultivated relationships with community partners that may be connected with patients depending on their needs. For example, Rebuilding Together Baton Rouge is on tap to help with installing wheelchair ramps, and Top Box to help with the proper nutrition to supplement a patient’s treatment. The initiative also means growing existing partnerships with Yellow Cab, Uber and Lyft, which the hospital uses currently to provide free transportation for Pennington Cancer Center patients.
