New Cancer Center of Acadiana at IMC Now Open - Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Iberia Medical Center and Lafayette General Health are excited to announce the opening of the new Cancer Center of Acadiana at Iberia Medical Center, located at 2309 East Main Street, Suite 301 in New Iberia.

The new center greatly expands the cancer care being offered at Iberia Medical Center. The newly renovated and expanded space will offer intravenous chemotherapy infusions in a modern, yet comfortable setting. Additionally, immediately adjacent to the Cancer Center infusion area, will be the oncology office of Dr. Paulette Blanchet.

At the Cancer Center of Acadiana at Iberia Medical Center, patients will be able to see their doctor and receive life-saving chemotherapy infusions the same day, at the same location. These chemotherapy protocols and drugs are the same that are available in the best cancer hospitals in the world, but can be given in the comfort of our own community.

"Keeping patients close to home for care means they can spend less time traveling and more time with their loved ones,” said Parker Templeton, FACHE, Chief Executive Officer for Iberia Medical Center. "That’s why we’re excited about this partnership with CCA. They’re willing to go that extra mile so our patients don’t have to.”

"Our New Iberia clinic has historically sent patients needing infusions to the IMC campus,” said Craig Ortego, VP of Cancer Services for Lafayette General. "Moving onto campus will allow us to work more closely with IMC staff. This is better for the patient.”

Dr. Blanchet earned her Doctor of Medicine at Indiana University School of Medicine. She underwent post-graduate training in Louisiana, completing her internship, residency and fellowship at LSU Medical Center in Shreveport.

"I’m looking forward to helping the people of Iberia Parish,” said Blanchet. "It is my honor to be their physician.”

Licensed to practice in six different states, Dr. Blanchet is also board certified with the American Board of Internal Medicine, in both Medical Oncology and Internal Medicine.
