PINEVILLE, La. – April 27, 2021 – Today, Cleco made a $1,500 donation to the DeSoto Regional Health System Foundation to support the health care system’s planned expansion. 
The foundation raises funds for the DeSoto Regional Health System, which is comprised of a nonprofit hospital, three rural health clinics and a wellness facility.

DeSoto Regional Health System recently announced plans to completely modernize its Mansfield Campus, enlarge its emergency department and build a new rural health clinic.
