Letter from the CEO

Welcome to the website for Minden Medical Center. It is a privilege to provide healthcare services to more than 70,000 people in the southern portion of Webster Parish and surrounding communities.

Healthcare is judged by the quality and compassion of those who provide the care, and the staff at Minden Medical Center are some of those caring providers. With a dedication to providing person-alized, caring, quality-oriented and cost-effective health care, Minden Medical Center offers the kind of services found in many larger medical facilities, but with the warmth and caring found in a close-knit community.

Originally established in 1926, Minden Medical Center is a 161-bed acute care hospital housed in a modern facility. We are accredited by the Joint Commission and approved by Medicare, Medicaid and Blue Cross for participation.

We offer a wide range of services, including orthopaedics, cardiology, emergency room, ambulatory surgery, pediatrics, OB/GYN, laboratory, diagnostic x-ray, cardiopulmonary, nuclear medicine, CT scanning, MRI, oncology, and a full range of rehab services with physical, speech, and occupational therapy.

Our medical staff consists of general surgeons, OB/GYNs, pediatricians, family practitioners, urologists, orthopedic surgeon and otolaryngologists (ENT). Ophthalmology, our special deliveries, senior care services, oncology services, and home health agency compliment our acute care offerings. An occupational medicine program and numerous managed care alternatives complete the menu of available services.

We also have a full-time radiologist consulting with our acredited Breast Care Center and consulting cardiologists, pathologist, physiatrist, psychiatrist and an interventional pain management specialist. Minden Medical Center offers patients both the sophisticated technology, as well as the compassionate personal attention and caring that are part of being a community-based hospital.
