LGMC voted top hospital in Acadiana
Lafayette General Medical Center (LGMC) retained its traditional top spot as the "Best of Acadiana”, when it was once again named Best Hospital in The Times of Acadiana annual readership survey. The 2012 results named LGMC the best in the following categories:
- Best Emergency Department
- Best Hospital
- Best Cancer Center
LGMC was also a runner-up in the "Best of” categories for Place to Have a Baby and Walk-In Clinic/Urgent Care.
The Times reported that nearly 20,000 voters cast ballots in this year’s contest.
Lafayette General has consistently been a favorite of The Times readers, garnering the title of "Best Hospital” and "Best Emergency Department” for several years running.
"It is our vision to build a regional health care system that always delivers excellence in care and outcomes,” says LGMC President/CEO David L. Callecod, FACHE. "This type of feedback from the community is both an honor and a tribute to the hard work we do.”
The announcement of winners was disclosed Monday night by The Times at its annual "Best of” party hosted at The City Club at River Ranch, where early editions were handed out to guests in lieu of Thursday’s weekly publication.
"We’d like to thank the entire community for their continued support and encouragement,” says Callecod. "They are what keeps us motivated to fulfill our mission to restore, maintain and improve health.”
