West Calcasieu Cameron Hospital (WCCH) remains open and available to meet the healthcare needs of Southwest Louisiana. During the storm, WCCH was able to treat patients in the emergency department (ED) and continues to provide ED, medical-surgical, maternity, and ICU services following Hurricane Delta’s landfall. Additionally, laboratory and radiology services are available at WCCH’s Main Campus.
“Our team of caring professionals provided medical assistance to those in need when they needed it most,” says Janie Frugé, CEO of West Calcasieu Cameron Hospital. The facility transitioned to generator power prior to the storm making landfall to ensure power surges did not interrupt operations.
The hospital will continue to mitigate and restore damages from Hurricanes Laura and Delta. WCCH is currently working with service providers to mitigate network and telecommunication outages.
At this time, WCCH has limited access to the facility. Entry is only accessible through the ED Entrance (off Stelly Lane) until Monday, October 12, when the south main admitting entrance will reopen.
The following clinics and ancillary services will resume operations on Monday, October 12, at 8 a.m.:
WCCH will continue to provide updates about additional patient services as they come online on our website, www.wcch.com, and the hospital’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/WestCalcasieuCameronHospital. For more assistance, please call our temporary main number at 866-984-0331.
