Glenwood Regional Medical Center's proud tradition of providing high-quality healthcare started more than 40 years ago. Over the years, the hospital has grown in size, adding new services and modern technology, but you'll still find the same family-oriented, friendly service that's been the cornerstone of this community hospital since the day it opened.
Over the years Glenwood has been a leader in bringing the latest technological innovations to the residents of Ouachita Parish. Glenwood was one of the first hospital's in the area to pioneer 64-slice CT technology, that offers the clearest views ever obtained of the human heart. Mammography services have recently been enhanced with the addition of digital mammography, recognized as the gold standard in detecting abnormalities and disease in the breast. And Glenwood just unveiled electronic patient records and electronic bar code scanning of medications to further improve the accuracy and speed information can be shared among caregivers and their patients. Glenwood became the newest member of the IASIS family of hospitals in February 2007.
Glenwood Regional Medical Center has been nationally recognized for quality, especially in the area of cardiology. It also consistently scores high in patient satisfaction. HealthGrades named Glenwood the best overall cardiac hospital in Louisiana in 2006. It also ranked Glenwood in the top 10% in the nation for heart surgery three years in a row, 2006, 2007 and 2008. HealthGrades is the nation's leading source for independent healthcare quality information.
