I live in an urban town named Houma in Louisiana. We have two local hospitals here. One is nonprofit and the other is for-profit. Charbert Medical Center is the town’s nonprofit hospital. This is where most people without insurance go for medical attention. They charge according to one’s income. They have most of the same services our local for-profit hospital has. They also have small clinics there for people to go to for non-emergency care. Terrebonne General Medical Center is the local for-profit hospital. This is where people who have some form of insurance go for medical attention. They have numerous services there for patients. They have everything from a Women’s Center for pregnant women to a Cancer Center for people who are diagnosed with cancer. Unlike Charbert, they do not have the clinics at Terrebonne General for non emergency needs.
