Welcome Message

Thank you for choosing us.

Welcome to West Jefferson Medical Center. During your visit, please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable.

When you’re at West Jefferson Medical Center, you’re family. That means we aspire to treat you with the dignity, respect and privacy you deserve. Patient satisfaction is a top priority for us and it’s our goal to meet or exceed your expectations whenever possible. Patient care and quality outcomes are always top of mind here at West Jefferson. We have a monitoring process that helps us improve our healthcare outcomes and enhance our patient satisfaction. That is why we ask patients to participate in a random post-discharge mail and/or telephone survey whenever possible. We encourage you to discuss your needs with your healthcare team, and we welcome your comments and feedback.

In 2019, West Jefferson was the only hospital in Louisiana recognized with the Healthgrades America’s 250 Best Hospital award. We were also recognized by Healthgrades as America’s 100 Best for Stroke Care and the Neurosciences Excellence Award. This is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our physicians, nurses and staff. It is our priority for our hospital to continuously strive to deliver the best care possible to all of our patients.

Accredited by The Joint Commission since we opened our doors in 1960, West Jefferson continues to grow to meet the needs of our community. We are part of the LCMC Health System which includes Children’s Hospital, Touro, University Medical Center, New Orleans East Hospital and West Jefferson Medical Center. We are stronger as part of a system and share resources with our sister hospitals to better serve our community.


Sincerely,

West Jefferson Medical Center Executive Leadership Team
