Lafayette General Health (LGH) is a healthcare system striving to build a regional healthcare network that delivers excellence in care and outcomes. LGH serves the south-central region of Louisiana by aligning with facilities across a 10-parish area known as Acadiana.
LGH’s flagship hospital, Lafayette General Medical Center, in operation since 1911, is a 501c(3) not-for-profit corporation that does not pay out any revenue to shareholders as for-profits do. LGH also owns or manages Lafayette General Surgical Hospital, St. Martin Hospital, University Hospital & Clinics and Abrom Kaplan Memorial Hospital, and has several affiliations with facilities across the region.
Both Lafayette General Medical Center and University Hospital & Clinics are major teaching hospitals, providing graduate medical education across many disciplines.
LGH owns Lafayette General Medical Doctors (LGMD), a non-profit corporation that operates and manages several physician clinics including Cardiology, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Medical Oncology and Hematology, Neurosurgery, Orthopedics and Otolaryngology (head and neck surgery).
