LGMC’s intensivist program is the only one in Acadiana and one of only a handful in the state.  This group of board-certified pulmonologists is available to provide critical care 24 hours day/365 days a year to all patients in Lafayette General’s 26-bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The intensivists work hand-in-hand with hospital staff to improve quality and patient satisfaction and to facilitate best practices relative to CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) Core Measures. They are responsible for coordination of care of the ICU patients, equipment, facilities, programs, personnel and professional services necessary to the provision of ventilator care management in the ICU.

Their presence in the ICU allows them to be much more aggressive with interventions and procedures that will improve patient outcomes. Working in one of the busiest ICU’s in the state, these physicians will provide efficient and cost-effective critical care. Their care to patients reduces ventilator-associated pneumonia and time on the ventilator. Studies show that intensivists reduce the risk of patients dying in the ICU by 40 percent.
