About Our Health System

More than a Great Hospital

Natchitoches Regional Medical Center is more than a hospital: It is a healthcare system. In addition to the 96-bed flagship hospital, NRMC operates The Courtyard of Natchitoches Nursing Home, Natchitoches Assisted Living Retirement Community, North Natchitoches Medical Center in Campti, NRMC Walk-in Clinic, and NRMC Women's Health Center. NRMC is also affiliated with PRISM Center for comprehensive rehabilitation, Northwest Louisiana Cancer Center, Regional Cardiology, and Natchitoches Imaging Center. The hospital is also adding a comprehensive wound care center in 2014.

As a Service District Hospital, NRMC is governed by a seven-member Board of Commissioners appointed by the Parish Council, and the heart of the hospital is the 100 physicians on active and consulting staff and the 600+ associates who work diligently to improve the quality of health in our community.

“From newborns to centennials, NRMC offers a continuum of high quality services to meet the health care needs of our community.”

John Luster, Chairman, Board of Commissioners
