Local

(Our Lady of Lourdes)-Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center has completed the purchase of Women’s & Children’s Hospital from HCA Healthcare. The hospital opened as a Lourdes facility at 12:00am on March 1, 2019.  In addition to Women’s & Children’s Hospital, the sale included Elaine M. Junca Woman’s Imaging Centre, Lafayette Surgicare, The Cancer & Infusion Center, Kid’s Specialty Center and several physician practices and clinics. 

“It is a momentous day as we welcome Women’s and Children’s into our Franciscan healthcare ministry.  By combining our comprehensive services to create one regional network of care, we are stronger than ever to serve the families of Acadiana.” said Bryan Lee, Chief Executive Officer of Our Lady of Lourdes. 

Women’s and Children’s will join Our Lady of Lourdes, Heart Hospital of Lafayette and over 35 clinics and centers to comprise the Acadiana market for the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System, Louisiana’s largest Catholic not-for-profit healthcare organization. Lourdes continues to expand in the region with an Emergency Center opening Fall 2019 off the I-10 corridor and the creation of the JD Moncus Cancer Center currently underway on the main campus. 

Since the Women’s and Children’s Asset Purchase Agreement was signed in December, the 90-day transition plan included onboarding 740 team members and 162 physicians joining the Our Lady of Lourdes medical staff.  A capital improvement plan is under development and the official hospital blessing is set for March 21, 2019.
