Iberia Medical Center Completes Acquisition of Dauterive Hospital - Thursday, January 14, 2016

Iberia Medical Center (IMC) today announced the completion of its acquisition of Dauterive Hospital from Progressive Acute Care (PAC) based in Mandeville, Louisiana.  Once the necessary improvements and relicensing is complete, Dauterive Hospital will become a campus of Iberia Medical Center and renamed Iberia Medical Center – North Campus.

  "We are thrilled to finalize our purchase of the Dauterive Hospital assets and medical office buildings.  Today begins a new chapter at Iberia Medical Center and a new chapter for healthcare in Iberia parish," said Parker Templeton, president and CEO of Iberia Medical Center.  "Together our combined campuses will deliver the highest quality care, great workplaces, and an engaged community partner.  The addition of the North Lewis Street campus strengthens our footprint and enhances our ability to meet this area’s healthcare needs.”

  While the next few months will be focused on a spring reopening, all medical office buildings and physician practices on the North Campus will remain open.  The North Campus will specialize in short-stay and outpatient surgery, behavioral health services, rehabilitation, imaging, lab, and other future services.

  Iberia Medical Center has transitioned many prior Dauterive Hospital employees into open positions at Iberia Medical to accommodate the additional volume at the Iberia Medical Center – Main Campus during the transition period.

  "Both IMC and Dauterive Hospital have long histories of dedicated and caring employees, medical staffs, boards and volunteers.  We are confident that our combined staffs and resources will not only lead us through the transition period, but help create a best-in-class healthcare delivery system for Iberia parish and beyond,” Templeton added.
