TALLULAH – Today, Governor Bobby Jindal highlighted the new Madison Parish Health Unit in Tallulah, which will begin seeing patients in the coming weeks. The new unit is needed because the previous facility was in need of many costly repairs and was not up to date with safety codes. The new facility will help residents of nearby rural communities access health services that they need closer to home.
Governor Jindal said, “This new health unit is great news for families here in Tallulah and in nearby rural areas. This brand-new facility is larger and can see more patients, delivering even better care to this community. I want to thank all of the staff who will be administering quality healthcare here at this great new clinic.”
Senator Francis Thompson said, “I am honored to highlight this great new building with Governor Jindal. Nothing is more important in our rural parishes than our health clinics. This new unit will provide early detection for families, as well as access to immunizations to keep our children healthy. It will also help people with health needs who cannot travel to medical centers in Monroe for care.”
The Jindal Administration committed $835,000 in capital outlay funding for the new Madison Parish Health Unit. The new facility is more than 8,000 square feet and includes a new clinic and a waiting room. It will provide better health care access to residents in Tallulah and the surrounding area.
