We have remarkable staff members across Louisiana who care for children and families. We are excited to announce the recipients of the 2015 LMCH Employee Awards from our Ruston campus. These employees were nominated by their peers. Please look for staff from our Louisiana Methodist Children’s Home of Southwest LA and Methodist Children’s Home of Greater New Orleans to be featured in an upcoming blog post. We are proud of all of our staff across the state!
