Growth Through Leadership

Lafayette General Surgical Hospital (LGSH) and Oil Center Surgical Plaza (OCSP) are owned by Lafayette General Medical Center (LGMC). LGSH has been part of the Lafayette General family for 14 years. OCSP celebrates its fifth anniversary in fiscal year 2019 and saw 10% growth in total annual surgical volume in 2018. LGSH and OCSP perform nearly 8,000 surgeries annually. This volume enables LGMC to focus on more critical patients and procedures.

LGSH and OCSP offered new surgical services and wrapped up the year with awards. Both LGSH and OCSP scored in the 99th percentile for Patient Satisfaction. This proves both entities are committed to continually improving their services in order to make sure every patient experience is a pleasant one.

LGSH increased neuro-spine surgeries 1,920% in fiscal year 2016, and now these surgeries account for 9% of LGSH’s overall surgical volume. At the end of the fiscal year, LGSH received Press Ganey’s prestigious Guardian of Excellence Award and Pinnacle of Excellence Award for Patient Experience in Ambulatory Surgery.

OCSP provides a first-of-its-kind procedure in Acadiana with the CATALYS® Precision Laser System. The laser provides patients with a less invasive option for cataract surgery. In only four months, OCSP’s Ophthalmologists preformed over 100 CATALYS® laser cataract surgeries since first performing this operation in May. Not only did OCSP see an increase in overall surgeries, they also added more surgeries in Urology, Neurology, Ophthalmology and general surgery.
