Our History

Morehouse General Hospital opened its doors in 1930 as a 19-bed acute care medical facility. It has grown to a 49-bed facility that is dedicated to meeting the ever-changing and growing needs of our community.

Morehouse General Hospital is proud to be a "rural" hospital with many of the benefits of a larger hospital in a metropolitan area. We offer state of the art technology, advanced equipment, and highly skilled staff....right here at home.

Morehouse General Hospital meets all of the requirements for licensure as required by the State of Louisiana and the federal and state guidelines for participation in Medicare and Medicaid programs. Beyond our primary mission of providing high quality, cost effective health care services to patients, the hospital represents a vital community economic development asset. Morehouse General Hospital prides itself in striving to stay abreast to the latest trends in health care.
