2024 The Face of Urgent Care

Lake Urgent Care: Innovating Baton Rouge’s Healthcare Landscape

In the heart of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Lake Urgent Care stands as a beacon of innovative healthcare solutions for the community. For over two decades, Lake Urgent Care has not only provided top-notch urgent care but has also evolved into multiple comprehensive healthcare facilities with 19 locations throughout the Greater Baton Rouge Area.

At the core of Lake Urgent Care’s success is its visionary leadership, including Dr. Kevin DiBenedetto, Chief Medical Officer and co-founder, whose background in Emergency Room medicine at Our Lady of The Lake Regional Medical Center provides a unique perspective. “I think seeing the transition to more outpatient and cost-efficient care has been the biggest catalyst for innovation in urgent care. Ultimately, it’s our patient’s wants and needs that stimulates new ideas and strategies for our delivery of care.”

When reflecting on the future of urgent care, he refers to the foundational principles that guided him and his co-founder, Dr. Graham Tujague, “At the end of the day, we want to deliver evidence-based care in an efficient and affordable manner, seven days a week.”

The innovative spirit doesn’t stop there; Lake Urgent Care’s CEO, Steve Sellars, also leads the way in transformative solutions. While discussing modernization tactics, Steve stated, “To succeed in urgent care or any industry today, embracing new, advanced solutions is essential. We were early adopters of online scheduling, paperless registration, curbside care, and virtual visits. Recently, we launched the MyChart app, seamlessly connecting patients to Our Lady of the Lake. Regardless of what the future holds, you can be sure Lake Urgent Care will be on the cutting edge, prioritizing our patient’s health.”

However, Lake Urgent Care is not just another urgent care center. Each location caters to the diverse, growing needs of the Baton Rouge community. Their extensive services include:
