Florida Blvd health unit reopens Wednesday
BATON ROUGE – Health officials announced Wednesday that services at the East Baton Rouge Parish Health Unit on Florida Blvd. have resumed.
According to the Department of Health, the unit was closed on July 7 after receiving a report of mold throughout the building.
Regional Medical Director Mr. Marilyn Reynaud said the building is now clean and safe. Reynaud said the unit will continue to work with city-parish officials to address any structural problems that caused the mold to grow.
“We feel assured that employees working in this building and patrons will not be exposed to any health hazards,” interim director for Buildings and Ground with the City-Parish said. “All reports we have received show levels far below hazardous conditions.”
The health unit provides multiple services and programs, including reproductive health clinics, regional tuberculosis services, immunizations, children’s special health clinics, vital records, sanitarian services, and Nurse Family Partnership services.
