Lafayette-based MidSouth Bank announced Monday the acquisition of two new bank locations in Baton Rouge, a move that, subject to regulatory approval, will double MidSouth’s presence in the capital. The bank purchased the former Hancock branch on Sherwood Forest Boulevard and the former Whitney branch on Jones Creek Road. MidSouth hopes to reopen those locations in September and October, respectively.

“These former Hancock and Whitney locations are a perfect distance from our two existing banking centers, allowing us to expand both our commercial and consumer reach in the Baton Rouge market,” says MidSouth Bank Regional President Paul Judice in a press release announcing the acquisitions. “The investment in these two locations will support our future growth in Baton Rouge and into surrounding parishes, while providing more convenience for our existing customers.”

Along with a branch in Carencro expected to open this month, the Baton Rouge acquisitions will expand to 43 the number of MidSouth banking centers operating in Louisiana and Texas.
