The ER at Baton Rouge General Mid City closed in March 2015 and critical care was shifted to the BRG location on Bluebonnet. Since, the Mid City location focused on caring for elderly patients, chronic conditions, behavior health issues and recovery services.
In March, the Mid City location opened as a drive-up COVID-19 testing center for people referred there by a doctor. Later, the facility opened hospital care rooms for virus patients. Click HERE for the latest COVID-19 patient information in Louisiana.
