West Calcasieu Cameron Hospital located in Sulphur, Louisiana is a part
of the southwestern Louisiana Gulf Coast region for the past 57 years.
The hospital was established as a community hospital in 1953 in which
the hospital has provided experienced physicians, skilled health care
professionals, state of the art medical technology and a great
reputation for caring for their patients. Their primary market includes
Calcasieu and northern Cameron parishes, but patients come as far as
Southeast Texas for medical care.
West Calcasieu Cameron Hospital is a 101-bed hospital in which this is
the second major addition in its history. Construction for the Radiology
and ICU expansion project began in early 2008 and was funded by the
taxpayer approved $25 million capital bond issue of 2006. This addition
is part of a three phase construction project in which this is phase
one. Phase one includes the following:
The First Floor has the Diagnostic Imaging with an MRI, Nuclear
Medicine, CT, Ultrasound, Mammography, X-Ray Rooms and a Cath Lab. This
addition is now the new front door for the hospital with plenty of
parking for patients, drop off canopy and four private registration
booths. The Diagnostic Imaging Department is adjacent to the Emergency
The Second Floor has the Intensive Care Unit with twelve new beds, large
waiting room for ICU patients, waiting room for Surgery patient families
and Respiratory Therapy. ICU is adjacent to the Surgery Department.
The Third Floor is a mechanical Penthouse and will be used as a
connection to the patient tower that will be constructed in a later
There are two remaining phases in the master plan, phase two will
feature a new patient tower with outpatient services on the ground level
and phase three will expand the laboratory, dietary and materials
management departments. When all three phases are complete this will be
considered a replacement hospital on the existing site.
