Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital has opened the Pediatric Specialty Clinic in Lafayette, the hospital’s first such clinic outside the Baton Rouge area.

The Lafayette clinic, at 5000 Ambassador Caffery Parkway, Suite 101, will focus on specialized care for pediatric gastroenterology. Other services may be added later.

“We recognize that it is important for families to stay close to home when finding quality health care. Expanding the reach of our children’s hospital to Lafayette allows us to improve access to Our Lady of the Lake’s pediatric expertise in that region,” said Nicole Telhiard, vice president of Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital.

Dr. Ghanim Aljomah is the clinic’s pediatric gastroenterologist.
