St. Helena Parish Hospital offers updated services

St. Helena Parish Hospital and Rural Health Clinic provides important services to Greensburg and the surrounding areas of St. Helena Parish. I had the opportunity to take a tour of the Rural Health Clinic as well as the Hospital and meet with CEO Naveed Anwan, Director of Nursing Michelle Cassel, Clinic Director Suzanne Campbell and Swing Bed Coordinator/ Public Relations Liason Amber Killingsworth. The changes with the facilities that have been made are exciting to see. The prospect of additional services by the hospital will help the citizens of St. Helena to not have to leave the parish to receive quality healthcare which is extremely important to the elderly and those without good transportation.

An important aspect of the hospital is the Emergency Room. The ER boasts minimal waiting room times as well as prompt treatment and diagnosis. There is always a licensed medical doctor as well as 24 hour radiology and laboratory services. In the event of a patient admit, the hospital has a 72 bed capability and around the clock care. The Skilled Unit - Swing Bed is dedicated to providing the best comprehensive skilled services to include Comprehensive Rehab such as speech, occupational and physical therapy as well as pulmonary and cardiac rehab. The unit also provides personal assistance with daily living, hospice care, individual and group activities as well as transportation services.
