CenterWell Senior Primary Care to Open Four Senior-Focused Care Centers in South Louisiana

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 16, 2021-- CenterWell Senior Primary Care will open four new senior-focused care centers in South Louisiana by early 2022, giving seniors in Denham Springs, Hammond, Covington, Slidell and surrounding areas access to CenterWell’s personalized, care-team approach to healthcare.

CenterWell Senior Primary Care is one of the fastest-growing senior-focused, value-based care providers in the country, delivering care to approximately 57,000 patients in its more than 65 centers, with continuous growth plans. CenterWell opened 15 new centers in the past year, and up to 20 are expected to open this year.

“We do things a little differently from the traditional primary-care center,” said Brienne Loy, M.D., primary care Regional Medical Director for Louisiana. “Rather than a transactional model of healthcare, in which a healthcare professional treats one specific condition, we take a more holistic view, in which we assess all of the patient’s needs, including their emotional wellbeing, their access to food and transportation and other factors that can affect their health. Then we develop a plan to address each of those needs.”

Each new CenterWell Senior Primary Care location in South Louisiana will be staffed by board-certified physicians and nurses, and patients will have access to clinical pharmacists, behavioral health specialists and social workers, who have been specially trained to treat the senior population. CenterWell is planning to hire approximately 30 employees overall, and all positions offer competitive salaries and benefits.

New centers scheduled to open between September and December include these locations:

Covington
66 Park Place
Covington, LA 70433

Denham Springs
2314 S. Range Avenue
Denham Springs, LA 70726

Hammond
2240 W Thomas Street

A fourth area center is planned for Slidell in early 2022, with an address to be announced later.

  • Area Medical Director
  • Primary Care Physicians
  • Physicians Nurse Practitioner or Physicians Assistants
  • Medical Assistant
  • RN Care Coaches
  • Certified Coders
