NRMC Launches Program for Northwestern State University Student Health Services

Natchitoches Regional Medical Center (NRMC) is pleased to announce that the health system will be overseeing all aspects of clinical care and services for Northwestern State University’s (NSU) student health needs with the commencement of the fall semester.

“We are ready to serve the students at NSU and help them in any way needed,” explained Kirk Soileau, NRMC Chief Executive Officer. “This program further strengthens the relationship between the hospital and the university. NSU is a wonderful university with a growing student body. With this new service, students will benefit from having access to a broad spectrum of care including services beyond the campus infirmary should they need it.”

Soileau noted that this service will become an extension of the NRMC Walk-In Clinic, and students will have access to care 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. They can also access Telemedicine services and have access to NRMC Pharmacy services. The retail Pharmacy, located in the Multispecialty Clinic on Keyser Avenue, is open 7 days a week from 8:30 am to 8:30 pm.

The medical directors of the student focused service are Dr. Mary Long and Dr. Michelle Mayeaux. The clinic manager is Charlotte Rhodes, RN; Nanette Bienville, RN, oversees NRMC clinics; and Misty Lester, RN, is the nurse practitioner coordinator.
