hospital exterior In 1978, Leonard J. Chabert Medical Center (LJCMC) opened its doors as a teaching hospital, providing quality healthcare services for everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. Fully accredited by The Joint Commission, LJCMC is a full-service institution for inpatient services with extensive outpatient services.

LJCMC participates in the evidence-based LSU Disease Management Program that manages chronic diseases with a wellness-based model focused on preventive care and patient education. The hospital consistently receives Louisiana Hospital Awards from the Louisiana Health Care Review (LHCR). In October 2010, LJCMC was invited to be a permanent site host for the American Cancer Society, serving as a resource center for oncology patients.

LJCMC is nationally recognized as a Patient-Centered Medical Home. The primary care clinics are accredited through the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). A valued feature of the outpatient service is an emphasis on patients knowing who their primary provider is with a solid relationship to improve wellness initiatives and healthcare outcomes.

The hospital continually strives to meet the ever-changing healthcare needs of its diverse patient population and be a community-based medical center that is value-driven and at the forefront of healthcare delivery, education, and practice.
