The heart-warming story of the whooping crane is one of rebirth, rejuvenation, and a commitment to bring this majestic bird back to its original home where it will receive the quality care it needs and have a surer chance of survival. Much like the whooping cranes restoration and rebirth, Abbeville General has a similar story of providing that same nurturing environment to our own community, where our patients can receive Quality Care Close to Home! Abbeville General has had its own “rebirth” with many physical improvements, addition of various value-added services, and our commitment to provide quality care to all residents in Vermilion Parish and surrounding areas. Many patients ARE coming home for their healthcare, instead of traveling to nearby cities. They are utilizing the Primary Care Medical Homes that are strategically placed in three cities throughout the parish for their primary care needs, as well as the various off-site centers that offer lab, x-ray, and EKG services. They are utilizing the Telemedicine services to see specialists in a timely manner. State-of-the-art equipment is provided by each and every department to ensure the highest diagnostic and surgical care. With all of these added services, there is no question why patients ARE coming Home. Abbeville General has earned numerous awards for their quality care, including the coveted Top Performer Award by the Joint Commission for Pneumonia and Surgical Care (two years in a row)! The dedicated staff at Abbeville General works tirelessly to ensure not only patient safety, but patient satisfaction as well.
Abbeville General is much like the whooping crane by offering Access to Quality Care Close to Home to the residents in Vermilion Parish. Our state’s commitment to restoring and revitalizing our coastal regions is much like our commitment to the people of the communities that we serve. As our community makes the effort to rebuild and revitalize our wetlands, we also make the promise to continue to build and grow as your healthcare facility of choice. The dedication and commitment of Abbeville General’s staff for their patients and that of the caretakers of the rare whooping crane will ensure that quality care is taken to keep both Patients and Whooping Cranes Close to Home!
