Founded in 1928 in the Oil Center and housed on the Regional Medical Center of Acadiana’s grounds on Congress Street (formerly Southwest Medical Center) for the past 25 years, Hamilton Medical Group is moving to the new Our Lady of Lourdes campus in January.

The multi-specialty physician clinic, which currently has 13 docs, is also consolidating its operations, shuttering its location at 3414 Moss St., according to Louise Derise, Hamilton’s administrator and chief financial officer. Hamilton’s Women’s & Children’s (pediatrics and OB/GYN specialties) and Farrel Road locations will remain open. The relocation is unlikely to affect any of the doctors' privileges at local hospitals, Derise says. "It's just a physical move."

Derise says the new office, located on the second floor of the four-story medical office building under construction in front of Lourdes on Ambassador Caffery Parkway, is smaller than the current site on Congress — 20,000 square feet versus 25,0000 — but is being designed for the delivery of 21st century medicine, including enhanced patient privacy. Hamilton leases 25,000 of the 90,000 square feet in its three-story office building on Congress; it will have an ownership interest in the new building on Lourdes’ campus.

Hamilton’s physicians — moving are Drs. Nathan Landry, Francine Manuel, Rick Matis, Daniel Salmeron, Bryan Frentz, Al Granger, Charles Olivier, George Sobiesk and Joshua Landes — plan to begin seeing patients at the new office building Monday, Jan. 10.

Also moving into the new four-story MOB on Ambassador Caffery Parkway are:
• Louisiana Oncology Associates (Drs. Brierre, Cole, Roden, Donald, Rainey and Rinaldi)
• Internal medicine practice with Drs. Vanderlick, (Kemp) Coreil, Snow and Dowden
• Dr. Stuart Begnaud (pain medicine/rehabilitation)
• Dr. Jeffery Chen (cardiology)
• Spine Institute of Southwest Louisiana — Dr. Kevin Lasseigne

Not-for-profit Lourdes’ new campus is driving additional medical office construction in the Ambassador Caffery Parkway/Verot School Road area. “Since we announced our new hospital, approximately 60 physicians will have relocated there before our move next summer,” says Lourdes President/CEO Bud Barrow.
