Construction is underway on Our Lady of the Lake Physician Group’s Money Hill Walk-In Clinic on Highway 21 in Bush, Louisiana.
Bush, LA – Our Lady of the Lake Northshore held a groundbreaking celebration for its new Our Lady of the Lake Physician Group Money Hill Walk-In Clinic. This innovative new ambulatory clinic will offer traditional primary care as well as 7 day-a-week, walk-in access to hundreds of St. Tammany Parish families across the Waldheim-Bush community. The clinic is scheduled to open in early 2023.
“Access and affordability. Shouldn’t that be what healthcare is all about? At Our Lady of the Lake and the Franciscan Missionaries of our Lady Health System, we think so. And we are committed to providing convenient access to high-quality healthcare at an affordable cost, along with a one-of-a-kind patient experience,” said Dr. Bryan Miller, Physician Executive, Interim Northshore Market President, Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System (FMOLHS).
The new 5,034 square foot clinic with its seven exam rooms will offer urgent care convenience at a primary care cost. Located adjacent to Money Hill’s Highway 21 entrance, the clinic is slated to be the first tenant in the new commercial development, The Village at Money Hill.
“We are incredibly grateful to Mimi Goodyear Dossett and the Money Hill community for choosing our ministry as their health partner. Justin Greenleaf and his talented team at Greenleaf Architects brought forth the beautiful clinic design, and DonahueFavret Contractors is bringing that design to life in record time.” Miller added.
In the tradition of their Catholic healthcare ministry, Our Lady of the Lake always leads with their faith. They invited Deacon Edward Kelley, Annunciation Catholic Church, to offer prayer and blessing over the construction site.
“This groundbreaking event was an inspiration to me, and it was very moving to see the overwhelming support and gratitude to FMOLHS for bringing much needed high-quality healthcare to this very special and historic area of St. Tammany. I am a firm and enthusiastic believer in St. Tammany Parish and our bright collective future. Together, strong partners like Our Lady of the Lake, DonahueFavret, Greenleaf Architects and Money Hill can plan for growth and expansion in a smart, visionary way that enhances quality of life and elevates the entire parish to be the best it can be,” said Mimi Goodyear Dossett, President, Money Hill.
“We are proud to be a part of the team to help FMOLHS bring another leg of its healthcare system to our area. This building design is intended to preserve the architectural integrity of Money Hill, while bringing a progressive influence to the development. This traditional yet progressive approach mirrors the exceptional patient care that FMOLHS and Our Lady of the Lake are known for.

Commitment from St. Tammany Parish with buy-in for smart, growth-oriented projects. Commitment from Money Hill on the groundbreaking of this new commercial development that will be a catalyst for future mixed-use development for this community. And finally, commitment from Our Lady of the Lake and the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System to bring this asset to the surrounding region providing much needed access to high-quality, affordable healthcare.
