With Lafayette General Medical Center (LGMC) as the flagship hospital, LGH also owns or manages Lafayette General Surgical Hospital, St. Martin Hospital, University Hospital & Clinics (UHC), Acadia General Hospital and Abrom Kaplan Memorial Hospital. LGH also has clinical affiliations with several other hospitals and professional medical centers across South Louisiana. LGMC and UHC, Acadiana's only two teaching hospitals, provide graduate medical education across many disciplines. LGH also owns LGMD Physician Group, a non-profit corporation that operates and manages several physician clinics, including Family Medicine and Internal Medicine, as well as many specialists and surgeons. LGH helps patients participate in their own health care by offering My Health the online patient portal, allowing people to view lab results and medical information for each hospital in the LGH system.

In continuous efforts to reach more patients, LGH helps facilitate telemedicine services to schools, businesses and government offices to make health care more accessible for people while at school or at work.

LGH demonstrates that, as a community-owned system, caring for all is our top priority.
