Louisiana Heart Hospital to close 14 clinics

Louisiana Heart Hospital in Lacombe closed Feb. 10, and the hospital's medical clinics will shut down by Feb. 28, according to The Times-Picayune.

After facing financial challenges in recent years, the 134-bed hospital and its affiliated medical group filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Jan. 30.

When the hospital shut down in early February, it was unclear if its medical clinics would follow the same path. On Friday, Atlanta law firm Alston & Bird sent an announcement to The Times-Picayune confirming the hospital's 14 medical clinics in Louisiana will close by Feb. 28.

The hospital will close four clinics in Slidell, three in Mandeville, two in Covington, two in Lacombe and one each in Bogalusa, Franklinton and Hammond.

Although the clinics are closing, many of the physicians will continue to see patients at new private practice locations in the area, according to The Times-Picayune.
