CHRISTUS St. Patrick Hospital - Ochsner Health System
With beautiful natural habitats, fresh water marshes, scenic rivers, inviting sunsets on the lakefront, warm sandy beaches, coupled with smiling faces and warm hearts, Lake Charles is an inviting place to call home. There is a variety of dining, shopping, and entertainment experiences awaiting your enjoyment. Attractions include the Charpentier Historical District, the Port of Lake Charles, Millennium and Adventure Cove parks, 1911 Historic City Hall, and the Central School Arts and Humanities Center. Lake Charles possesses many of the appealing characteristics and qualities of a great urban center, yet maintains that "personable feel" of a smaller town.
The City of Lake Charles is conveniently located off Interstate-10 between Houston, TX and New Orleans, LA. Our sandy beaches make up the shores of the Calcasieu River just 30 miles upstream from the Gulf of Mexico. Lake Charles is connected to the Gulf by means of a deep-water ship channel and is the seat and port of entry of Calcasieu Parish.
38 Denominations and 169 Churches exist in the metropolitan area, along with several more represented throughout the district.
