There will be some changes in clinic flow and surgery scheduling at Ochsner – The Grove, effective Monday, March 16. Our main goal is to limit exposure of patients, employees, and visitors to COVID-19 (coronavirus). As this is a rapidly changing situation, please know that procedures will continue to evolve. However, for now:
- We currently have a zero visitor policy with limited exceptions defined by the state. Only essential visitors, and for now that means no visitors at clinic visits unless they are needed for assitance
- All patients and employees will be screened (temp, etc) when they are entering the Grove (and other Ochsner facilities.
- We may adopt unconventional strategies such as having patients wait in the car until their clinic room is ready.
- We will be rolling out telemedicine capabilities for the ortho & sports medicine clinics in BR.

Thank you for being patient with us as we streamline these processes. If you have questions, please reach out to us through MyOchsner or call 225-761-5200.
