BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Patient Plus Urgent Care intends to open its ninth clinic in the Shenandoah area next summer.

Construction is expected to begin on the 3,400-square-foot clinic this upcoming December. The facility will have six exam rooms, digital x-ray, and will have occupational health services and is expected to open in May/June 2023.

“I am excited to bring Patient Plus to the Shenandoah/Tiger Bend area, where I grew up and attended middle and high school,” said Rubin Patel, M.D. Chief Executive Officer at Patient Plus. “This neighborhood is special to me; I’ve had hopes of opening a clinic to serve this community since I started Patient Plus in 2016. Now with Patient Plus Tiger Bend, that dream becomes reality.”
