Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital has added pediatric pulmonology services to its Pediatric Specialty Clinic in Monroe offering diagnosis and treatment for children with respiratory issues.  The Pediatric Specialty Clinic, which also offers pediatric gastroenterology services, is located at 2600 Tower Drive, Suite 215 in Monroe, Louisiana.  

Pediatric Pulmonologist Rafael Cilloniz, MD is the Board Certified and Fellowship-trained specialist at the clinic offering pulmonology treatment for children ranging from newborns to teenagers.  Dr. Cilloniz also provides care at Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital in Baton Rouge. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Cilloniz at the Monroe clinic, call (225) 765-6834.

The addition of pulmonology services adds to Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital’s growing statewide network of pediatric healthcare excellence. In addition to the Monroe clinic, the Children’s Hospital also offers pediatric gastroenterology clinics in Lafayette and Hammond, and a pediatric allergy and immunology clinic in Gonzales.  As an extension of Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital, these clinics provide greater access to specialists and the same exceptional quality and clinical expertise offered at the main campus in Baton Rouge.

Recently, St. Francis Medical Center in Monroe was announced as the first hospital-based partner of Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital, representing a clinical collaboration that connects the best of local and regional resources.  The partnership allows for extended specialist expertise at St. Francis as well as specialty clinics and community programs that aim to improve pediatric health in Louisiana. The partnership is another element of coordinated healthcare in which the vision is to improve the overall health of our children across the state.
