50th Anniversary Celebration!
Abbeville General Hospital opened its doors to the citizens of Vermilion Parish and surrounding areas in February 1966 as a community based, non-profit healthcare provider. After numerous expansions, renovations, and modernization projects, AGH continues to provide quality healthcare services on the same site that was dedicated to the purpose in 1966.
Today, Abbeville General Hospital is a 60-bed acute care hospital committed to providing quality healthcare to the community and surrounding areas. Our facility is modern, completely equipped and staffed to provide our patients with a full spectrum of modern technology, procedures and treatments, as well as comprehensive specialized care.
AGH is a fully licensed and accredited hospital that meets all requirements of the State of Louisiana and the Joint Commission. For the last two years, AGH has received the prestigious Top Performer Award for Surgical Care by the Joint Commission.
A year-long celebration has been planned to acknowledge the 50 years that Abbeville General has served this community. A Gumbo Cook-off and Anniversary Celebration took place on Friday, Feb 26th on the hospital grounds. At 2:00PM, there was a "Gathering” under a big white tent, where historical icons for the hospital were honored: first patient, first admitting physician, and even two 50 year employees! Stories were exchanged and tours were given highlighting the beautiful revisions made to the hospital over the last 50 years. Prizes were awarded for the best gumbos and a 50 Year Anniversary cake was shared!
Every month throughout the year, employees will be able to enjoy various activities planned as we commemorate our 50 years of service. Hospital Week will be celebrated in May, with daily activities for the employee’s enjoyment as a thank you!
Thank you for allowing us to serve you and your families since 1966!
