The Mission of LaSalle General Hospital is to deliver safe, high quality healthcare to all of our customers.
We will meet or exceed the needs of all our customers.
Hospital Service District No. 2 of LaSalle Parish was created in April 1966 by the LaSalle Parish Police Jury. In October 1970, LaSalle General Hospital opened with thirty seven (37) medical/surgical beds.
The facility has experienced tremendous growth over the years, as additional physicians and professional services were added. This growth includes not only buildings but services as well. Highlights of that expansion include:
Today LGH is a comprehensive healthcare center licensed for 49 acute inpatient beds, skilled nursing care (swing beds), a broad range of outpatient services, ambulance service (with financial support from the Ambulance Service District of LaSalle Parish), home health care and physician clinics in both Jena and Jonesville. Our commitment to the residents of LaSalle and surrounding parishes is stronger than ever, and we continue to strive to meet the primary healthcare needs of our entire service area.
Over the years the hospital has received recognition throughout the State for excellence in the provision of comprehensive primary healthcare to rural communities.
