Five-Star Quality Rated by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for two years running!

CEO Message

Dear Friends, Colleagues, and Community Members:

It is certainly undeniable that the past two years have been challenging for all of us. As we emerge from the many challenges presented by the natural disasters, pandemic, and economy, I am extremely proud of our team for continuing to work so hard on many strategic initiatives resulting in recent growth. In the face of staffing challenges, supply chain disruptions, and the impacts of inflation, we successfully implemented the following, all in an effort to improve the long-term healthcare and wellness needs of our community:

*Tested, vaccinated, and cared for our workforce, patients, and community with regard to COVID-19

*Formalized value-based care through our accountable care partner

*Launched a Chronic Care Management program for Medicare beneficiaries

*Opened a newly designed Infusion Center

*Returned 24/7 Cardiovascular services to the community

*Developed general and advanced Podiatric service lines

*Recruited new Physicians, Podiatrists, and Advanced Practice Providers, including a new OB-GYN and General Surgeon

*Established two clinic locations in Vernon Parish, with one additional location on the way

*Established BHS as a clinical rotation site for medical students.

In addition to remarkable growth, we have remained dedicated to providing the highest quality of care, as evidenced by our designation as a Five Star quality-rated hospital by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for the second year in a row. We are very proud to be one of just six hospitals across the state of Louisiana to receive this designation.

With a newly defined Mission and Vision, Beauregard Health System is dedicated to the continued improvement in access to healthcare in our community for you and your loved ones. The groundbreaking of our new state-of-the-art Emergency Department will take place soon, along with the renovation of the hospital's third floor for a comprehensive Women's Health services center. We are Here For Life!
