LaSalle General Hospital

 

Rural, Comprehensive Healthcare

 

 

LaSalle General Hospital is a 49-bed acute care facility, located in Jena, Louisiana. LaSalle General has upheld its mission to deliver safe, high quality healthcare since the hospital opened in 1970. The hospital has grown in staff, facilities and services to become a full-service acute care hospital that offers inpatient care; outpatient services; physical, speech and occupational therapies; ambulance services, advanced diagnostic services; women’s and men’s healthcare; surgical care; pediatric care; cardiopulmonary services;  cardiology consultations; skilled nursing care and telemedicine services.

 

As one of the few rural, comprehensive health systems in Louisiana, LaSalle General’s facilities include LaSalle Home Health, which expands healthcare delivery beyond the main campus, and LaSalle Therapy and Wellness. We also have two rural health clinics – LaSalle Family Medicine located in Jena and LaSalle Primary Healthcare located in Jonesville. Our rural health clinics provide preventive care and health screenings for the entire family, and we are one of the only facilities in our region to offer DOT CDL physicals.

 

At LaSalle General Hospital, we care about our patients’ wellbeing and take a comprehensive approach to healthcare. LaSalle General Hospital has more than 240 employees on staff, and many members of our clinical and administrative staff have been with the hospital and served the community for over 20 years. We promote healthy living through community health fairs and provide education and training for current and future clinicians, in addition to education and shadowing opportunities for individuals seeking a future in healthcare. LaSalle General Hospital is also a proud sponsor of the “AHEC of a Summer Program,” which allows high school students to get a look/glimpse into career paths the healthcare profession has to offer.

 

Our recognition by the American Cancer Society as the Top Overall Fundraising Team for its LaSalle Parish Relay for Life initiative to fight cancer is just one way we support volunteerism and a healthier community.

 

LaSalle General Hospital’s primary purpose is to render the best care to our patients – this community and outlying parishes 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
