Acadian Medical Center takes a new turn

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.
