2017 marks the 60th anniversary of Opelousas General Health System. On May 27, 1957, hospital administrator, Sister Madeline Sophie and the Sisters of the Marianites of the Holy Cross dedicated and opened the doors of Opelousas General Hospital to begin our journey of caring for our community. The observance of the 60th anniversary will serve as a reminder of Opelousas General’s dedication to providing the highest quality of care available to the people that we serve.  

We have a variety of events throughout the year to celebrate this milestone.  Please join us in celebrating "Our Family Caring for Yours" for 60 years.
