Lake Charles Memorial Hospital

Lake Charles Memorial Hospital, the main campus of the Memorial Health System, is the region's largest family-centered medical complex, serving the healthcare needs of Southwest Louisiana. Memorial Health System is locally-owned and operated by a Board of Trustees from the community it serves, is a member of the Voluntary Hospitals of America (VHA), and is fully licensed by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.

Established in 1952, the main campus consists 314 licensed acute care beds on Oak Park Boulevard. Memorial is constantly striving to improve the patient experience by offering the best quality of care in terms of both state-of-the-art innovations and treatment options, as well as the commitment of our dedicated and compassionate staff. The main campus provides the largest array of specialty and emergency services in the community.

Since 2006, Memorial has reinvested in the healthcare services we provide to our community through the expansion of services, physicians, technology and facilities. To date, over $117 million in capital projects have been implemented including expansion and/or renovation of cath lab, surgery, sterile processing, rehabilitation, food services, pediatrics, and gastroenterology center.

With the largest emergency department (ER), in 2014, Memorial began expansion of emergency services which will double its size when it opens in 2016. Additionally, a new intensive care unit (ICU) and the construction of a new medical office building in Southwest Lake Charles is underway. More capital improvement projects are planned as Memorial works to ensure it has the best facilities, doctors and service for the residents of Southwest Louisiana.

Lake Charles Memorial consistently receives The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety in hospitals. The Cancer Center is also a recipient of the Outstanding Achievement Award by the American College of Surgeons’ (ACS) Commission on Cancer (CoC).
