Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates
We know you may be hesitant to visit a hospital or clinic during these uncertain times. We also know that delaying preventative or lifesaving care could cause damage to your long-term health and wellness. Your safety is our top priority. Learn more about how LCMC Health is addressing your concerns.
LCMC Health facilities are following the requirement of the Louisiana Department of Health in suspending non-essential surgeries and procedures effective March 19, 2020. Rescheduling these appointments will minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19 among patients, visitors and our providers. This will also let us conserve critical resources and focus our care on those who need it most.
If you have an upcoming procedure that falls into this category, your provider will reach out to you with more information. If you have specific questions on whether your procedure falls into this category, we encourage you to reach out to your provider. We understand your concern, and we're here to put your mind at ease. If you have any questions regarding your upcoming scheduled visit or hospital delivery, we encourage you to reach out to your provider.
