The Central Louisiana Surgical Hospital provides specialized care for patients with specific, non-critical and non-emergent surgical admissions. The ultimate goal of the facility is to assist patients throughout their stay to a successful recovery, by providing a setting and care that is a more effective delivery of health care. This is accomplished by providing a comfortable home-like setting, in which a caring professional staff works to insure the highest level of patient care in a more cost-effective setting. Family support and involvement is promoted and encourage as well. This supports the patient’s self-image as “other-wise healthy” and facilitates a speedier return to the community, reducing health care costs and strengthening the economy at large. The surgical hospital offers procedures for the following specialties: ENT, gastroenterology, general surgery, gynecology, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, oral surgery, orthopedics, pain management, plastic surgery, podiatry and urology. In addition to surgical services, Central Louisiana Surgical Hospital has an imaging department comprised of MRI, CT, general radiology and ultrasound, as well as laboratory, pharmacy and dietary services.
