Lane Regional Medical Center was named "2021 Acute Care Hospital of the Year" (61-160 beds) by the Louisiana Nurses Foundation and the Louisiana State Nurses Association to recognize excellence in nursing and quality service in the nursing and healthcare industry.
It is the third time Lane has received this award.
