Acadian Medical Center giving COVID-19 vaccinations

The supply may be limited, but Acadian Medical Center is joining the effort to provide the COVID-19 vaccine to the public.
Kevin Frank, CEO, said the hospital gained access to the vaccine this month.
Acadian Medical Center is not on the state Department of Health’s list of vaccine sites.
“We are just trying to make sure the community knows that Acadian Medical Center is here. It is part of the Eunice community and we are trying to get the community vaccinated,” he said.

Acadian Medical Center takes a new turn

By Harlan Kirgan

Acadian Medical Center this week is embarking on a new course as it begins operating under its own license.
The Eunice hospital has operated as a campus of Mercy Regional Medical Center in Ville Platte, but as of Wednesday the two facilities, both owned by Allegiance Health Management, of Shreveport, began operating with their own licenses.
Kevin Frank, hospital CEO, said the only difference the public may notice is Acadian Medical Center will lose the Mercy tagline on its signage.
