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

Eight doctors recently graduated from the Lake Charles Memorial Hospital (LCMH) and Louisiana State University Health Science Center (LSUHSC) Family Medicine residency training program.

This year's graduates include: Drs. Jean Ancelet, Fallon McManus, Rick Edwards, Melissa Rasberry, Lacey Millet, Ben Degatur, Raji Natarajan and Nick Heinen.

The Memorial/LSUHSC Family Medicine Residency Program began in January of 1995 and accepted the first class of residents in 1997. July 2012 began the fifteenth year of operation, producing 79 graduates over the years that understand and recognize the pivotal role family physicians have in directing family health care. 

"Residents receive three years of comprehensive study in all major areas of medicine:  internal medicine and its subspecialties, pediatrics, surgery and its subspecialties, obstetrics and gynecology, emergency medicine, psychiatry and community medicine," says Dr. Alan LeBato, director of the residency program. 

Twenty-four resident physicians staff the Family Medicine Clinic, helping to meet the health care needs of southwest Louisiana. The mission is to promote and provide the highest quality physician education through patient care, utilizing the most up to date educational methods and information systems. 

The family medicine residents provide services in Memorial's ER department, the pediatric service, the general surgery service, and the OB-GYN service areas in a private hospital setting with consultants in private practice.
