West Calcasieu Cameron Hospital Announces the Relocation of Several Departments to New Wing
Several departments at West Calcasieu Cameron Hospital have begun operating in the hospital's new wing, located at the rear of the hospital, on Stelly Lane. According to Bill Hankins, CEO of West Calcasieu Cameron Hospital (WCCH), while several departments are scheduled to move to the new facility, the transition will take place over the next month. "Given the nature of the departments involved in the move, each department will need to be moved one at a time. We will begin with outpatient services and slowly transition the move to larger departments."
According to Hankins, the departments that are moving first are Admitting, Radiology and the Ambulatory Preadmissions Treatment Center (APTC). Those departments that will be moved at a later date include the Intensive Care Unit, Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory and the Respiratory Department. With the Admissions Department now located at the rear of the hospital, this area will become the hospital's new main entrance. The completion of this wing marks the completion of the first phase of the hospital's three phase master facility plan.
