These projects were an expansion of the existing Health Care Center on Carrollton Avenue in New Orleans and a rehabilitation of an historic school building in the Bywater Historic District.
The Carrollton project is a 2-story steel frame, brick veneer building. The existing 2-story building adjacent to the expansion area was in operation for the duration of the phased construction, and was renovated immediately after the current operations were moved to the newly expanded building area.
The first floor of the new and existing buildings houses primary outpatient clinics, while the second floor houses specialty outpatient clinics for dental and optometry. The second floor accommodates Daughters of Charity Services of New Orleans’ administrative offices and training rooms.
The Bywater project is located on the campus of the St. Cecilia Church which also houses national award-winning the PACE program (also designed by Blitch/Knevel) sponsored by the Archdiocese of New Orleans. The interior of the building was completely renovated as an outpatient physician clinic and outpatient dental clinic, waiting rooms and administrative offices. The second floor is used for physician offices.
