LHC Group officially opens new Lafayette Home Office campus

LAFAYETTE, La. – LHC Group, a national healthcare company born in Acadiana and headquartered in Lafayette, will join One Acadiana to officially open and celebrate its new Home Office campus located at 901 Hugh Wallis Road. The event will start at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 12 at the new home office campus. The public is invited to attend.

Special guests include LHC Group’s distinguished Board of Directors, Jake Delhomme, retired professional quarterback, former University of Southwestern Louisiana standout and LHC Group Founder’s Advisory Board member, as well as Jason El Koubi, One Acadiana president and CEO.  Refreshments will be served after the ceremony. Tours of the new facility will also be available.

LHC Group management said the new location will consolidate virtually all of the company’s Home Office departments under one roof, increasing square footage by approximately 20 percent and providing better access to major arteries like Highway 90 and to Lafayette Regional Airport.

“The consolidation significantly reduces our overall cost and provides us with room for future expansion as our company continues to grow,” said Keith Myers, LHC Group chairman and CEO. “We believe this step will allow our Home Office employees to function as an even more efficient and cohesive team. We look forward to providing continued support for our clinicians and staff around the nation as they provide high quality health care to the patients and families we are blessed to serve. Those folks – our employees in the field and the patients who have trusted us with their care – are the reason we go to work each day here in the great city of Lafayette.”

LHC Group was founded in 1994 as a single freestanding home health agency in rural St. Landry Parish. Since then, the company has grown from a local to a regional to a national publicly-traded company with more than 10,000 employees in 29 states – a company recognized as a national leader in the post-acute care sector and one of the largest in the industry.
