Lafayette General Health to acquire hospital from HCA

Lafayette (La.) General Health has announced it will acquire Regional Medical Center of Acadiana in Lafayette from HCA MidAmerica, a division of Nashville, Tenn.-based Hospital Corporation of America.

Once the deal is complete, LGH will own, operate and manage RMCA as an extension of Lafayette General Medical Center, and RMCA will be renamed Lafayette General Southwest.

"Acquiring RMCA will allow us to quickly increase our capacity to treat more patients in Lafayette, and give us more time to plan for greater tertiary service expansion at our Oil Center location after we become the region's official emergency trauma center later this year," said David L. Callecod, president of LGH.

The deal is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2015.
