Lake Charles Memorial Hospital

1701 Oak Park Boulevard
Lake Charles, LA 70601


Lake Charles Memorial Hospital is the region's largest family-centered medical complex, serving the healthcare needs of Southwest Louisiana and Southeast Texas.  Memorial Hospital is locally-owned and operated by a Board of Trustees from the community it serves. The hospital is a shareholder of Voluntary Hospitals of America (VHA), and is fully licensed by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. CEO Larry Graham joined Lake Charles Memorial Hospital in 2006, bringing more than 28 years of experience in healthcare administration, most recently with Methodist Hospital in New Orleans.

Lake Charles Memorial Hospital's logo of four interlocking hearts exemplifies the hospital's dedicated mission of service, commitment, compassion and community. We Are Memorial: Everything Your Healthcare Should Be is our mantra - reflecting the hope, passion and dedication Memorial has for improving and servicing the healthcare needs of our community.

The only full-service, not-for-profit, locally-owned healthcare system in Lake Charles, Memorial Hospital was established in 1952 and consists of a 368-bed healthcare system with a 301-bed acute care facility at the main campus on Oak Park Boulevard; Memorial Hospital for Women, a 38-bed women's facility at Gauthier and Nelson Roads; and a 29-bed long term acute care Memorial Specialty Hospital. While we continue to be the healthcare market leader in the Lake Charles region, Memorial is constantly striving to achieve the highest patient satisfaction by offering the best quality of care in terms of both state-of-the-art innovations and treatment options, as well as the commitment of our dedicated and compassionate staff.
