Ochsner Health System in New Orleans began its long and illustrious journey towards medical innovation in 1942. Ochsner was created by five physicians and surgeons, including the internationally renowned surgeon and educator, Dr. Alton Ochsner. Since opening, the Ochsner name has become synonymous with advanced medical research, education and clinical care and is considered one of the top five medical institutions of its kind in the nation.
Patients come to Ochsner from throughout the United States and from around the world. They come to Ochsner to see some of the brightest minds in the field of medicine, a staff of over 750 physicians practicing in more than 90 medical specialties and sub-specialties, and to access the latest technological advances and cutting-edge research assembled in one of the most comprehensive medical facilities in North America. This tradition of medical excellence has, for more than 60 years, firmly established the Ochsner name as a world-renowned multi-specialty clinic. This dedication to leadership in healthcare reaps rewards for our patients. Ochsner is consistently ranked among the very best in patient satisfaction and quality of care surveys.
Our patients are our focus and their well-being is our primary concern. To this end, Ochsner has developed a highly specialized, regionally integrated, delivery system that extends its approach to healthcare far beyond the main campus.
