our History

  • Open Health (previously the Caring Clinic of Louisiana) opened in 2007 in response to the high number of uninsured residents of our community. Open Health is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) based in Baton Rouge.  

  • Over the past 10 years, Open Health has grown with the goal of better serving the community and contributing to not only a healthier physical condition, but also creating a healthier peace of mind in our patients. 

  • In 2016, Open Health relocated to a new facility in order to expand the number of patients served and the number of services provided. The new facility includes specified waiting areas, an increased number of examination rooms and classrooms that can be used for educational events. 

  • We opened a dental clinic in January 2017 with Stephen Brisco, Jr., DDS as the primary dentist. Our adults and pediatric dental services include dental exams, cleanings, fillings, extractions and more.
