On Tuesday, May 5, if you passed by DeSoto Regional Hospital’s Emergency entrance, you may have thought something terrible was going on. In fact, it was just the opposite as deputies, firefighters, police officers, EMS personnel and the general public gathered to participate in the “Light It Up” campaign honoring all doctors, nurses, lab workers, and the entire staff at DeSoto Regional Hospital and DeSoto Regional Health Care.

The Mansfield Police Department, Mansfield Fire Department, DeSoto Fire District 8, DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Department, and DeSoto EMS personnel all blared their sirens and lights in unison as healthcare workers watched, waived and cheered. It was quite a moving moment to see other front line responders honor their health care provider brothers and sisters.

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.

Desoto Parish Tourism Celebrates National Travel and Tourism Week

Desoto Parish Tourism Celebrates National Travel and Tourism Week

Desoto Parish Tourism joins the rest of Louisiana and America in a look ahead to recovery with a theme of resilience and hope in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. As a rural community, DeSoto Parish has worked hard to establish our area as a destination for fishing, family reunions and small-town charm.

In 2019 the tourism office launched their new website at DiscoverDeSoto.com. We included places to stay, visit, dining, fishing, attractions and venues. The website is constantly being updated with new events and locations. 2020 was gearing up to be a successful year for our local events before so many were canceled due to the governor’s proclamation to shelter in place until May 15. The public is encouraged to continue with social distancing and wear face coverings.

The 2020 National Day of Prayer in DeSoto Parish will be done a little different. Tradition would call for the event to be held on the DeSoto Parish Courthouse lawn, with Logansport holding its meeting on the Riverfront and Stonewall holding theirs at one of the schools. To comply with Gov. John Bel Edwards’ Stay at Home Order, this year’s event will be held but without speakers, special music or fellowship.

Local organizer of the event, Winter Case, said, “The National Day of Prayer has not been cancelled or delayed. Due to the attendance restrictions we are opting for a non-meeting National Day of Prayer event.

LA Governor Extends Stay at Home Order to May 15 While TX Governor Reopens Select Businesses

On Monday, April 27, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said that he would let the state’s stay-at-home order expire on Thursday, April 30, as scheduled and allow businesses to begin reopening in phases the next day, the latest ramp-up in his push to restart the Texas economy amid the coronavirus pandemic. Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards then announced on April 29, he would extend Louisiana’s Stay at Home order until May 15 to continue to slow the spread of COVID-19. Louisiana does not currently meet the White House criteria for entering Phase One of reopening. It seems that Northwest Louisiana has been kept closed due to the COVID-19 ratios in the New Orleans area, which many political officials claim is unfair to DeSoto, Sabine and Caddo businesses.
