Ochsner Health acquires Diamondhead Urgent Care

Ochsner Health announced today it has acquired Diamondhead Urgent Care, giving the hospital system a bigger footprint in Hancock County.

Diamondhead Urgent Care will become one of two Ochsner locations that provide urgent care services, along with Ochsner Health Center – Port Bienville. The company also acquired the former Hancock Medical Center in Bay St. Louis, now Ochsner Medical Center  — Hancock.

The Diamondhead facility will provide urgent care services, including after hours and weekend access to healthcare. The existing employees and physicians will continue to provide healthcare at this facility, while additional staff will be added as the patient load increases.

This acquisition represents a sizable, $3 million, investment in the Diamondhead community.

“With the acquisition of Diamondhead Urgent Care, Ochsner continues to expand access to convenient quality care in Hancock County and on the Gulf Coast,” said Jeff Edge, Chief Executive Officer, OMC-Hancock & Gulf Coast Clinics.

“The addition of urgent care services in Diamondhead and Port Bienville are examples of our pledge to the community to provide high-quality healthcare locally.”

This acquisition connects patients in Diamondhead to the entire Ochsner Health network. Ochsner physicians can quickly and securely access any past medical information and share results with other Ochsner medical providers.
