Lady of the Sea extends thanks to community

Dear 10th Ward Community Members:

A sincere thank you from all of us here at Lady of the Sea General Hospital and Clinics for the faith and support you showed us in the ad valorem tax vote that took place on Saturday, November 21, 2015.

Since our hospital district was formed in 1956, the community of South Lafourche has supported us, enabling us to expand services, recruit physicians, renovate and enlarge our Emergency Department, and build a new primary care medical clinic. As the primary provider of healthcare in the 10th ward, we do not take our role lightly.

Within the past twelve months, we have opened our After Hours Clinic, providing a much needed option for care of minor injuries or illness in the evening or weekends.

In July, Lady of the Sea eliminated an outside ER staffing companyand began staffing with our own physicians, improving the services provided. In addition, we now offer telestroke services with Ochsner, teleradiology services at night and on weekends, and partnered with Cardiovascular Institute of the South (CIS) to provide telecardiology services for our hospital and ER patients. In August, we opened our newly constructed Lady of the Sea Medical Clinic Cut Off, merging our Cut Off and Golden Meadow clinics. The new clinic offers on location pharmacy services with Lady of the Sea Community Pharmacy, providing convenience and easy access for our community. Lady of the Sea Community Pharmacy- Larose opened in November 2014.

Your support of our ad valorem tax allows us to offer these new services while continuing to provide exceptional quality care for our family, friends and neighbors. Once again, your vote instilled in us the drive and confidence to continue to provide high quality healthcare in a personalized manner to those we serve.
