Nearly a dozen homes could be affected by a possible hospital expansion.

Ochsner is planning to build a parking lot along the Jefferson Highway corridor, but some neighbors are wary about the hospital's plans. The vote on the rezoning request has been deferred so the neighbors can meet with hospital officials to address concerns.

The new $360 million expansion will bring thousands of new employees, but some neighbors are concerned about the traffic and parking.

Ochsner said they plan to adjust their zoning request according to resident concerns.
