In a time of questions about drastic changes coming to the nation's healthcare system, District 7 Congressman Charles Boustany took a walk in local physicians' shoes Thursday.
He spent the morning at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital, meeting with administrators, physicians and nurses about the challenges they are facing as the medical community deals with rapid changes. Some of that includes access to care, reimbursement concerns for treatment and obstacles in what Boustany calls the government's "one size fits all" plan.
"You need to understand what happens at the ground level in clinics and hospitals and empower physicians and healthcare providers to work with their hospitals and clinics to provide the highest quality of care," said Boustany.
Boustany got a first-hand look at Memorial's Sports Medicine Program. It is the result of the hospital's staff working with community high schools to provide them with athletic trainers year-round. Director of that program, George Ange, says his five certified trainers serve 22 high schools.
"We take the pressure off the coaches and off the parents. We are the first ones to be called on if there is a type of injury," said Ange.
The trainers with LCMH's Sports Medicine Program cover high schools in Beauregard, Calcasieu and Cameron Parishes. They treat athletes regardless of financial obstacles.
