A new construction application has been filed with the city for a proposed Ochsner Health “free standing” emergency room on Canal Street.
The proposal is for the southwest intersection of Canal Street and South Carrollton Avenue, where a current furniture store, Sofas and Chairs, is located, according to city documents. A permit summary shows a 9,022 square foot construction area slated to be added to the existing one-story building.
Plans also include a proposed driveway for ambulances and patient drop off, according to the renderings.
A date has not been set yet for the plans to be heard by the City Planning Commission.
