Inpatient Admission

Excellence in Care for Lake Charles Families Since 1952

Our Inpatient Rehabilitation Center focuses on excellent care for recovering or rehabilitating patients. Lake Charles Memorial Health System is an inclusive, full service medical center committed to providing a full range of services for individuals and families in the Calcasieu Parish and surrounding communities. We strive to be your primary medical services center-whatever you need, we can provide. This makes us unique, as we provide numerous services not offered by neighboring hospitals.

Part of our care at Lake Charles Memorial is focused on rehabbing patients. Our Inpatient Rehabilitation Center serves patients in the process of rehabilitation. We carefully screen patients to find those suitable for this program. Others may be referred to local agencies, organizations, or services better suited to their situations. We encourage you to contact our staff with questions or to learn more about our inpatient rehabilitation services.
