Merger Completed between LifePoint and RCCH

November 16, 2018

LifePoint Health and RCCH HealthCare Partners have completed their merger and will now begin operating as one, united company under the LifePoint Health name.

As we are still part of the LifePoint network, Teche Regional Medical Center is now connected to an even stronger network of community hospitals, regional health systems, physician practices, outpatient centers and post-acute facilities that spans 30 states. This will give us new opportunities to grow and thrive in the rapidly evolving, competitive healthcare landscape.

While there are great opportunities ahead, much about how our hospital operates today – including our dedication to our patients, employees, physicians, and community – will remain the same, and we do not anticipate any changes in how our patients access our hospital and healthcare providers. People throughout our community can continue to count on our committed staff and physicians at Teche Regional Medical Center to provide excellent care that makes our community healthier.

We look forward to sharing more about the newly-expanded LifePoint Health as it relates to our community in the future. This merger does not affect the upcoming lease discussion with the Hospital Service District.
