May 20, 2021
Coushatta, Louisiana – In recognizing the incredible work of our hospital and Associates over the last year on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, CHRISTUS Coushatta Health Care Center is celebrating its amazing team with Hospital Week festivities.
CHRISTUS Coushatta Health Care Center has achieved many successes over the last year in fulfilling our commitment to the community to provide access to advanced care for everyone; here in the Coushatta community. Most notably, the CHRISTUS Coushatta family continues to grow with recent additions to OB/GYN and Behavioral Health services provided by new nurse practitioners. Patients now have the most advanced mammogram available-Digital 3D Mammography is available at the clinic. Improvements continue throughout the center, including
the newly renovated Outpatient Clinic Waiting Area. The CHRISTUS Coushatta team also administered the COVID-19 vaccine to more than 3,200 individuals in the region helping deliver a dose of hope one shot at a time.
The last year was a very challenging time for health systems across the nation; reflecting on the journey, it is evident the CHRISTUS Coushatta team remained focused on fulfilling the CHRISTUS mission of extending the healing ministry of Jesus Christ in Coushatta and Red River Parish. Patient care by the numbers during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic (March 9, 2020-February 26, 2021) is proof our Associates worked tirelessly on every front, answering the call to provide compassionate care:
- Nearly 5,000 visits to the CHRISTUS Coushatta Emergency Room
- Over 750 Mammograms performed
- Nearly 13,000 visits to the CHRISTUS Coushatta Clinic
- Over 2,000 visits to the CHRISTUS Coushatta Dental Clinic
- More than 3,400 patient hospital days
“On behalf of our leadership team, I would like to express our gratitude to each of our outstanding Associates for all they do every day for our ministry and the patients we are privileged to serve. We have made it through some unprecedented times; it’s our turn as leaders to serve this team as a token of our appreciation, said Brandon Hillman, Administrator, CHRISTUS Coushatta Health Care Center.
Hospital Week is celebrated daily with themes and special treats including donuts, Sugar Walk Popcorn, Streetcar Sno Balls, Nothing Bundt Cakes and Associate BINGO games for great prizes daily. Friday festivities culminate with a Crawfish Boil.
“This is our chance to celebrate the work that we get to do for this community and the people that serve this community and this facility so well,” said Kay Sour, Administrative Director of Nursing, CHRISTUS Coushatta Health Care Center.
