A bit about us:

We are a 197-bed full service, smoke-free, medical center as complete and as inclusive as any referral hospital in the state. The main campus is a six-story facility .The acquisition of technology, combined with continuing education relative to advanced medical techniques, provides a healing environment typically found in much larger metropolitan areas.

Our latest $68 million dollar expansion and capital improvement plan includes a 5-story parking garage, 6-story Medical Complex, Emergency Center, Coronary ICU, and an off-campus medical imaging center. In April 2007, construction of a new Sleep Disorders Center for children and adults was completed and opened.

Why join us?

We are one of the oldest cities in Louisiana, and our story is more than just one small city -- it is a story of a way of life. We were founded in 1720 and populated by travelers, traders, Native Americans, Creoles, and those of French and Spanish descent.

Culture abounds in the sights and sounds of a community rich in history. From our unique array of museums to our restaurants featuring "hot and spicy" Cajun cuisine, you are sure to find something special here. You will be delighted by the architecture, the shaded streets, the wonderful cuisine, and of course the music. Live Zydeco music is very abundant here and is home to many Zydeco musicians.
