BREAUX BRIDGE, La. (AP) - A 6,000-square-foot addition planned for St. Martin Hospital is just one sign that health services for residents in St. Martin Parish are expanding.
Since Lafayette General Medical Center took over the hospital in 2009, Katie Hebert, chief executive officer and vice president of St. Martin Hospital, tells The Advocate radiology services such as CT scans and mammography, cardiac stress testing and new physicians with specialties in women's services and cardiology have joined the hospital's campus.
Hebert says the $2 million expansion will enable the hospital to enlarge its emergency department, which treats between 13,000 to 15,000 patients annually.
She says the new addition will house outpatient services such as the lab and radiology departments.
The expansion should be complete by June.
