Our hospital was founded in 1948 by three physicians with a solid commitment to the well-being of the people of Winn Parish and the surrounding region. Those physicians were: Dr. John McElwee, Dr. George Rodgers and Dr. John T. Mosley.
At that time, Winn Parish Medical Center had 30 beds, an operating room, a delivery room and x-ray and laboratory services. It was the only hospital within a 50 mile radius of Winnfield. In 1963, an addition was made to the existing hospital with 24 private rooms being added as well as a new laboratory and dietary department. Two years later, expansion was needed again. This included enlarging business offices, adding a medical records office, a new delivery room, labor rooms, recovery rooms, a doctor’s lounge, and a second emergency room. In 1972, construction began on a new administrative wing and a two story addition which included a new lab, x-ray room, operating room, pharmacy, physical therapy section, a coronary care unit and additional patient rooms. While over the years more physical ground changes have been made and names, faces, titles, technology, expectations and clinical outcomes have changed, our same solid commitment still remains.
Today, with more than 200 highly trained and dedicated employees, Winn Parish Medical Center provides a wide array of inpatient and outpatient services including: Cardiology, Intensive Care, Emergency Services, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Radiology, General Surgery, Physical Therapy and more.
Winn Parish Medical Center is committed to providing high-tech healthcare for the needs of today’s healthcare consumer and has emerged as a vibrant healthcare organization exhibiting warmth, concern and insight into the needs of patients, their families, and the surrounding communities.
