The following is a Press Release from the Lake Charles Memorial
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.
