Welcome to Minden Medical Center.

It is a privilege to present our facility to you. Healthcare is judged by quality and compassion of those who provide the care, and the staff at Minden Medical Center are some of those caring providers. With a dedication to providing personalized, caring, quality-oriented and cost-effective health care, Minden Medical Center offers the kind of services found in many larger medical facilities, but with the warmth and caring found in a close-knit community.

Originally established in 1926, Minden Medical Center is a 159-bed acute care hospital housed in a modern facility. It is the only hospital in the southern portion of Webster Parish and serves a population of around 43,000.

An occupational medicine program and numerous managed care alternatives complete the menu of available services. We also have full time radiologists consulting with our Breast Care Center and consulting pathologists, cardiologists, a neurologist and an anesthesiologist.
