LifeCare Specialty Hospital of North Louisiana

LifeCare Specialty Hospital of North Louisiana specializes in the treatment of medically complex patients who require extended hospitalization. We are passionate about giving our patients the best chance at recovery from acute injury or illness by providing early and aggressive intervention in a critical care setting.

Our hospital features 55 beds in all private, high observation rooms.  Our care teams are physician-led and our trained, dedicated nurses and respiratory therapists are all certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support.  And because each one of our patients is a special individual – not just a diagnosis – and we care for them body, mind and soul. We are accredited by The Joint Commission, Medicare certified and offer free parking.

The treatment team at LifeCare Specialty Hospital of North Louisiana includes physicians, nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists and therapists across a range of disciplines — physical, speech, occupational, respiratory, recreational and psychological therapy. We believe this transdisciplinary approach helps speed physical, emotional and spiritual recovery.

We embrace each of our patients as individuals with a personal history and a unique health situation, and provide the compassion, support and nurturing necessary to achieve optimal recovery.

In addition to our long term acute care services, we also offer the following outpatient services:

  • Continuous cardiac monitoring
  • Intensive ventilator care and aggressive ventilator weaning
  • Inpatient plastic and general surgery
  • Bedside peritoneal and hemodialysis
