St. Francis Medical Group plans to build a medical office building in Ruston. The facility is slated to be between 10,000 and 12,000 square feet and to open in January 2016, said Kristin Wolkart, the CEO of St. Francis Medical Group.
“It will be a medical office building, strictly outpatient, physician offices, lab, X-ray and urgent care,” Wolkart said.
Many members of St. Francis Medical Group are physicians who live in Ruston but currently work in Monroe, she said.
