BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The emergency room at Baton Rouge General Medical Center - Mid-City officially closed its doors for good Tuesday morning.

The staff paused to release balloons, reflecting on 65 years of service to the Mid-City community. With the closure, nearby urgent care clinics and hospitals are extending their hours and services to accommodate patient needs.

The hospital's chief nursing officer said patient care remains a priority.

"Our utmost purpose is to make sure we provide the best quality care for our patients and our community," said Anna Cazes, chief nursing officer and VP of patient care. "So, with that, we have scaled each of our staff and each of our departments to make sure we match the expertise of our clinicians to the services that we will provide to each of our hospitals."
