Since 1949, DeSoto Regional Health in Mansfield has provided health care to thousands of people living in DeSoto Parish and beyond. Originally founded as DeSoto General Hospital, the medical facility has revolved and updated from basic general care to provide Cardiology, Diagnostic Radiology, ENT, Emergency Medicine, Fitness/Wellness, Gastroenterology, Primary Care, General Surgery, Hematology/Oncology, Nephrology, Neurology, Ophthalmology, Orthopedics, Therapy Services, Podiatry, and Urology.

In 2020, DRHS found themselves joining other health services in unchartered territory with the Coronavirus, widely known as COVID-19. Health services from mammograms to routine office visits for check-ups had to basically come to a halt to concentrate on COVID-19. As of May 2, DRHS handled 404 completed tests, with 117 of those being positive. They have had four deaths; 2 in-patients with one of those being a DNR (do not resuscitate) and 2 treated at the emergency room.

DRHS CEO Todd Eppler proudly reported that they are moving forward with some procedures and surgeries now available. Postponements were due to state and federal guidelines.
