Lafayette General Medical Center's Cancer Center of Acadiana will open a new Cancer Center of Acadiana at Abbeville General Hospital beginning Monday, May 28.

The CCA at Abbeville General will offer the same clinical treatments as those in Lafayette and in renowned cancer centers in Houston and throughout the country. Physicians at the CCA in Lafayette will spend time working at the CCA in Abbeville.

“Lafayette General values the people of Acadiana,” stated LGMC President and CEO David L. Callecod.  “Reducing the variation in the way cancer care is delivered makes it better for the patient in every aspect and keeps us true to our mission to restore, maintain and improve health.”

Lafayette General says they hope to utilize the affiliation with Abbeville General as the stepping stone for more clinical service line partnerships in the future.

“We are pleased to work alongside LGMC in bringing cutting-edge cancer treatment standards to Abbeville General,” said AGH CEO Ray Landry.  “This allows the residents of Vermilion Parish the convenience of seeking world-class medical treatment without leaving home.”
