Leonard J. Chabert Medical Center

Southern Regional Medical Center d/b/a Leonard J. Chabert Medical Center is owned by Hospital Service District No. 1 of the Parish of Terrebonne, a political subdivision of the State of Louisiana, and managed by Ochsner Health System.

Since 1978 Leonard J. Chabert Medical Center (LJCMC) has been caring for the underserved in the region. In addition to this mission, the hospital was established as a graduate medical teaching facility to provide clinical training for physicians, nurses and allied health personnel.

These services account for approximately 2,600 inpatient discharges, 248,000 outpatient tests and procedures, 122,000 clinic visits, and 34,500 emergency department encounters.
