About Jennings American Legion Hospital

Our Motto: "Patients First"

Jennings American Legion Hospital (JALH) is a 49-bed non-profit acute care hospital located in Jennings, Louisiana. In the early 1950s, in response to community need, the membership of James O. Hall Post 19 American Legion committed to establishing a hospital, ultimately dedicated and operational in December 1960. The hospital continues its commitment to patients though a mission-driven culture of excellence. JALH is fully accredited by The Joint Commission and offers a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services.
