Outpatient Medical Centers Inc., a multi-million dollar Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) operates three health centers: Natchitoches Health Center, Leesville Health Center and Tallulah Health Center. We are a JCAHO accredited healthcare delivery system that has been operating since 1977 offering comprehensive Family Medicine services, Urgent Care services, Pediatric services, Adult Medicine services, Behavioral Health services, Pharmacy Services (offered through our 340(B) Pharmacy Services program); Outreach and Enrollment services, Dental Services and a myriad of enabling services.
We are currently accepting new patients at all of our health center locations and we accept most insurances. Whether you have insurance or not, our community service mission (which has not changed since our inception) is to keep our community families healthy. As we are here to keep your family healthy, we will provide the same compassionate and professional services for your family and you, irrespective of your ability to pay. Currently over 6,500 community families utilize our health system as their family’s medical and dental primary care “home” and we’d welcome the opportunity to become your family’s medical and dental home.
Outpatient Medical Centers Inc. is currently working to strengthen our health center clinical teams to position our health system to care for more of our valued community families. As our Administration has received public inquiries regarding whether we are going out of business and/or have plans of closing some of our health centers, I feel compelled to address these public inquiries at this time. We are not going out of business; we have no intentions of retreating from any of our current health system service area markets (Natchitoches, Vernon and Madison Parishes) and my Board of Directors and I ask for the community’s support to help strengthen our health system by bringing your families to our health system for the personalized, professional, culturally-sensitive, cost-effective and medically appropriate primary care services your family deserves. We count it an honor to care for your family and you and we welcome more Active Duty, Reserve, military Veterans and their families to establish care with our health system.

For those community families looking for a new medical and//or dental home, I close encouraging you on behalf of our Board of Directors and dedicated staff to pick up the phone and call us today.
