The former American Legion Hospital has unveiled its new sign, bearing the name Acadia General Hospital.

The hospital is now under the management of the Lafayette General Health System.

“It’s tremendous,” said A.J. Jones, who represented American Legion Post 15. “I think it’s going to be a godsend to the community and the whole Acadia Parish. It’s a blessing.”

Acadia Post 15 of the America Legion took over the hospital in 1929. The organization owned the hospital for more than eight decades.
