Our staff is trained and dedicated to providing the highest standards of personal care and privacy for each of our patients. We want your time with us to be as comfortable as possible.


Your safety remains our highest priority at LSSH.  We continue to follow the most current guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID and other infectious diseases.  Below is a summary of the expectations for all visitors and healthcare workers that enter LSSH.


Masking is recommended for your protection 


Everyone will be screened upon entry to LSSH for symptoms of illness, including:

  • Fever greater than or equal to 100.4°F
  • Cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion that differs from their typical seasonal allergies
  • Body aches
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of smell/taste
  • Vomiting/Diarrhea
  • Active COVID infection/pending testing or recent close contact exposure



Preoperative COVID-19 testing is performed at the request of your physician.


Everyone is encouraged to maintain adequate social distance (6 feet or more) when appropriate


We strongly encourage everyone in Acadiana to roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated.  Unvaccinated individuals are at a substantially higher risk for developing severe symptoms that may require hospitalization. Please help us slow the spread of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases for ourselves, our community, and the entire Louisiana healthcare system.


Please contact LSSH at 769-4100 if you have any questions.

If you have special needs for confidentiality, please let our staff know as soon as possible. Our Medical Records department will require your authorization for release of any medical records, except in the case of transfer to another health care facility, or as required by law or third party payment contract.
