LSUHSC Residency Program take over Moss Regional Pediatric

The following is a Press Release from the Lake Charles Memorial Hospital:

The Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC) Residency program at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital will be taking over the Pediatric Clinic at the W.O. Moss Regional Medical Center next month. Moss Regional announced in early February that it would be closing its pediatric clinic due to budget cuts. March 1 is the scheduled date for the transition.

"When we heard the doors would be closing at the Moss Regional pediatric clinic we opened ours," said Dr. Alan L. LeBato, program director of the LSUHSC Family Medicine residency program at Memorial. "We want those children to have a place to continue to receive top medical care when they need it."

Patients with sickle cell anemia will be able to continue to receive treatments at the Memorial/LSUHSC Family Medicine Center. Clinics for patients with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) will also continue at the center.

Memorial/LSUHSC's community-based Family Medicine residency training program began in January 1995.  Currently, around 30 doctors treat patients at the Memorial/LSUHSC Family Medicine Center.

In January 1996, the program was granted provisional accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). In January 2002 the program was awarded full accreditation and has maintained full accreditation with each site visit. 

The most recent site visit, April 4, 2009, by the ACGME generated an award of a five year accreditation status, currently the highest award granted by the accrediting body.

The mission of the Memorial/LSUHSC Family Residency Program is to promote and provide the highest quality physician education through patient care, utilizing the most up to date educational methods and information systems.
