Journey to Excellence
The Journey to Excellence Campaign
Research protocols available to patients treated at our center give our physicians and patients access to new treatment portocols before they are available at other treatment centers. Through our valued relationships with M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Tulane University and various pharmaceutical companies, we provide cutting-edge protocols and clinical trials in both medical oncology and radiation therapy.
The Cabrini Heart Center – Cabrini Hospital has the distinction of performing the first open heart surgery in Central Louisiana. We want to continue that tradition of leadership in heart care. Through the Journey to Excellence we want to develop a One Stop center that offers the full range of cardiac services.
School – Based Health Centers -- CHRISTUS St. Frances Cabrini Hospital operates 17 school-based health centers throughout Central Louisiana. Though these programs are sponsored by the Louisiana Office of Public Health, the professional staffing of the center is a budget item of the hospital. Basic school health services are available to all students without charge. This forward thinking program improves access, for children and families, to quality medical and mental health care. The primary goal is to keep our children in school.
The Cabrini Chapel -- A new chapel will be constructed on the grounds of the hospital. As a Catholic health care institution, the Cabrini Chapel will be the spiritual center of CHRISTUS’ mission and ministry. The Chapel will be the spiritual oasis for those who are struggling with the emotional issues of life and death. Our new chapel will underscore our mission, “to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ”. If you would like to make a capital gift to the construction of the chapel, please contact the Foundation office at 318-448-6580.
The Cabrini Journey to Excellence Initiative is a major gift to sustain and enhance CHRISTUS clinical areas of excellence.
