Clarity Hospice of Baton Rouge is planning to open its first inpatient facility at 9191 Bluebonnet Blvd. within the next month and a half, says owner Michael Cassidy. The 14,000-square-foot, 16-bed facility will be called The Crossing at Clarity Hospice. Cassidy says Clarity purchased The Crossing’s location three years ago due to its close proximity to the south Baton Rouge medical corridor and spent the following three years researching how to improve services. In addition to the accommodations typically offered at inpatient centers, The Crossing will include pediatrics, bariatric rooms and an isolation room. There are two other inpatient hospice facilities in Baton Rouge—one at Baton Rouge General in Mid City and one on Airline Highway at Jefferson Highway. —Rachel Alexander
