Past Successes

Moms & Babies Care Project

At Natchitoches Regional Medical Center our Labor and Delivery staff take pride in providing quality care with compassion and believe each patient deserves the best care possible. Our Labor and Delivery nurses are trained to care for patients before, during and after giving birth providing personalized care for our neighbors, friends, and community.

In order to assure our families and their newest additions get the best quality care the NRMC Foundation launched our We Care for Moms & Babies campaign.   This campaign:

  • Protects moms and babies with state-of-the-art monitoring software and equipment.
  • Equips physicians with access to critical health information at any time and from anywhere.
  • Improves the labor & delivery experience with new safe, comfortable birthing beds and sleeper chairs.

3–D Mammography Project

Research shows that 1 in every 8 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their life.  Breast cancer has the highest incident rate of all types of cancer in Louisiana with the second highest death rate.   Knowing the critical importance of early detection, NRMC took action by opening a brand new Breast Health Center with the latest in 3D digital mammography.  This technology is superior in that it (1) is more comfortable for women, (2) produces much fewer false positives, and (3) results in less exposure to radiation for the patient.  This service had not been available in Natchitoches forcing women to drive an hour or more one way north or south to access the technology.  The design of the new NRMC Breast Center focuses on comfort and convenience for the women of Natchitoches and neighboring parishes.

The NRMC Foundation successfully conducted a philanthropic campaign to raise funds to bring 3-D Digital Mammography to Natchitoches.  Through multiple community-oriented events (Steel Magnolia Run and Tappedtober), donations from individual community members and civic organizations, and our own associates conducting numerous internal fundraising activities, two 3-D mammography units are now serving the women of our community in the NRMC Breast Center.  This is truly a community initiative.  Your financial support is greatly appreciated and is saving lives through early detection of breast cancer.

the cancer center

In August 2021, with the help of the Foundation, NRMC acquired the local Cancer Center in Natchitoches to ensure cancer patients in our community continue to have access to excellent care here at home. We have all been touched by cancer, if not personally then through our friends, relatives and neighbors. We have big plans for the NRMC Cancer Center. Our Foundation is dedicated to funding advanced PET Scan technology, comfort improvements, a serenity garden with bell tower, and transportation for our neighbors and families.
