Since 1960, Iberia Medical Center has been dedicated to helping you and your family maintain good health.
It's a commitment we bring you 24 hours a day, seven days a week, through a full range of services. The care you receive from our professional staff is always delivered with a spirit of compassion and concern. From our beginnings as a community project of the local Lions Club, Iberia Medical Center was created with the establishment of Hospital Service District No. 1 in 1951. Over the next nine years, the Lions Club worked with the Iberia Parish Police Jury, the culmination of their efforts resulting in the opening of Iberia Parish Hospital on September 13, 1960.
In 1981, our facility expanded to become Iberia General Hospital, undergoing a $10.8 million construction project to add a fourth wing to the existing building. During the 1990s, our services expanded to include home health, behavioral health and rehabilitation, and the facility became Iberia Medial Center to reflect the broader base of services provided to our community.
Over the last twelve years IMC's operating success has resulted in a surplus. As a not-for-profit, community hospital, all profits are invested back into our community through expanding technology, upgrading facilities, and improving operations. – less
