Breast Screenings and Mammograms

We offer a free screening program for women through a grant funded by the Center for Disease Control in conjunction with LSU’s Health Sciences Center in New Orleans. The screenings, administered under the Louisiana Breast & Cervical Health Program, are available to eligible women in need of breast exams, mammograms, breast ultrasounds, pelvic exams, pap smears and cervical and breast biopsies. Learn more about the free screening program.

Audiology 

University Hospital & Clinics has an advanced Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) testing system. ABR tests are used to screen hearing of newborns and young infants, gauge adult hearing loss or detect other nerve and brainstem damage. The top feature of the ABRsystem is that no sedation is required.

Medical Detox Program at University Hospital & Clinics

University Hospital & Clinics is the only hospital-run in-patient medical detox facility in Lafayette.

The voluntary inpatient program provides 24-hour medically supervised evaluation and treatment to eligible patients 18 years or older. The mission of the program is to provide the “first step” in a patient’s rehabilitation process by providing a safe, therapeutic detoxification experience, while minimizing painful effects of withdrawal. This allows the patient to complete the remaining steps of their recovery and rehabilitation in a more comprehensive program at another facility.

Compass Health manages the 12-bed program by providing trained detox nursing and counseling staff members and supervisors. UHC, in cooperation with LSU Health System, provides physician services. The hospital also provides the support of a pharmacy, diagnostic and testing services, and dietary and environmental services.

Lafayette General Health can transfer patients willing to receive needed medical detox services from any of its affiliated emergency departments to the inpatient program at UHC.

In order to be admitted, a patient must meet certain criteria, the most important of which is a primary diagnosis of Substance Dependence and/or Substance Withdrawal. They must also voluntarily agree to participate in the treatment program.

A detox protocol is initiated upon admission to the program. The detox protocols generally last 5-7 days, depending upon the patient’s condition. All medications prescribed are at the lowest effective dosages that are medically feasible for control of the patient’s withdrawal symptoms and condition. Upon discharge, staff assists patients in transitioning to a more comprehensive program elsewhere for their addictions. For more information, please call 261-6343.
