Quality Emergency Care When You Need It

Medical emergencies are scary and stressful. And no matter how big or small the emergency, the last thing you want is a wait time. The Emergency Department at West Feliciana Hospital is located at the front of our facility, open 24 hours a day, and staffed with specially-trained physicians at all times.

In an Emergency, Every Second Counts.

Our ER features treatment rooms that allow you to be seen quickly and in a private setting, as well as state-of-the-art trauma rooms and a psych eval room. Our emergency room physicians, nurses, techs, and support staff have extensive training and experience in emergency trauma and critical care, so they can quickly identify, evaluate, and care for your illness or injury.

Some of the best emergency care in the state of Louisiana, here at home.

Chest Pain Accreditation

West Feliciana Hospital is the first Critical Access Hospital in Louisiana to be accredited as a Chest Pain Center by the American College of Cardiology. This accreditation is only awarded to facilities who are focused on the efficient and effective care of serious cardiac issues, and have proven exceptional competency in treating patients with heart attack symptoms. As an accredited Chest Pain Center, we have streamlined our systems from admission and diagnosis all the way to post-discharge care and recommendations.

We are committed to optimizing patient outcomes and promoting patient and community awareness surrounding aspects of cardiac care.

If you are experiencing chest pain, please call 9-1-1 immediately.

Emergency Medical Services

With two Advanced Life Support ambulances staffed 24/7 and two additional ambulances to serve as backup when necessary, we’re ready to respond to your emergency as soon as we get the call. Our ambulances are equipped with advanced technologies that allow us to coordinate care with on-site, emergency room physicians in real-time. Doctors can assess your condition and prep your room while you are still on the way.

TeleStroke Medicine

A stroke can change your life dramatically, leaving you with disabilities and unable to resume your previous lifestyle. The faster you receive proper treatment for a stroke, the better your chances of recovery.

To ensure that you receive the right care as quickly as possible, West Feliciana Hospital has adopted the TeleStroke Medicine system. With this easy-to-use and cost-effective service, you’ll have immediate access to a stroke neurologist at any time of the day. Telestroke technology allows stroke experts to treat you remotely while working closely with your West Feliciana team, so you can avoid transferring to another medical center. You can receive the highest quality stroke care right here in your community.
