Inpatient, Outpatient & Observation Services in St. Landry Parish

The Medicine Unit at Opelousas General Health System provides acute inpatient care, outpatient care, and observation services for patients who can benefit from these services. You or a loved one may be referred to this unit if you need monitoring for congestive heart failure, diabetes, pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), sickle cell anemia, cellulitis or other related illnesses.

These are patients who can benefit from an extra level of care but are well enough that they do not need surgical interventions and are hemodynamically stable. The Medicine Unit also provides blood transfusions and IV services.

Unit features include:

  • Comfortable, private rooms with showers
  • Telemetry capabilities
  • State of the art high quality smart acute care beds
    • Patient comfort to reduce stress
    • Safety features, including fall prevention via voice prompts, visual lighting, and bed alarms
