Every resident of Baton Rouge deserves access to healthcare

The area of Baton Rouge with the highest rates premature death, uninsured residents and preventable illness is served by the fewest healthcare professionals -- SEVEN TIMES FEWER, with 45 doctors per 100,000 residents vs. 330 in the other areas of our parish.

This petition asks the East Baton Rouge Parish Metro Council to create a Healthcare Service District serving this medically underserved area of our community, which includes North Baton Rouge, Mid City, Downtown and “Historic South” Baton Rouge.
