Women's Health

The Byrd Regional Hospital's Women's Diagnostic Center offers complete health screenings, breast health, childbirth and support services for women of all ages. In addition, we've attracted physicians specializing in the unique obstetrical, and gynecological needs of women and Board eligible radiologists and registered radiological technologists.

Obstetrics & Gynecology Services are staffed by the area's leading specialists. These services offer comprehensive pregnancy care, including ultrasound and nutrition services. Byrd Regional Hospital provides maternity patients with LDRP (labor, delivery, recovery, and postpartum) rooms.

Breast Care

The idea that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure is no more true than with breast health. While self-examination is recommended for all women, Byrd Regional Hospital also offers a variety of diagnostic services that can help identify breast issues before they become larger health problems. From mammography to biopsies, we are dedicated to keeping women healthy, educated and informed with regard to the health of their breast tissue.

We offer education, screening, diagnostic and support services to women of all ages in Vernon Parish, including mammography exams.

Our mammography services adhere to FDA standards and we provide testing in a comfortable environment, supported by a knowledgeable staff of doctors, nurses and technicians. We also believe in the value of preventative care. In fact, if you're older than 40, the American Cancer Society recommends annual mammograms. We adhere to this recommendation as well, and are dedicated to helping you make this vital screening a routine part of your yearly check-up.

Our services include:

  • Breast Ultrasound
  • Cyst Aspiration
  • Digital Mammography
  • Galactogram
  • Needle Biopsy
  • Needle Localization
  • Stereotactic Breast Biopsy
