US News Best Hospitals

A gold Best Hospitals badge signifies a hospital's top 50 ranking in the most comprehensive national evaluation of hospitals by any third party organization.

US News 2014-2015

Out of nearly 5,000 hospitals in the United States

Only 144 performed well enough to be nationally ranked in even one specialty

Only 1 hospital in Louisiana is national ranked in any specialty

Ochsner Medical Center is nationally ranked in 9 specialties

And we are 1 of only 36 hospitals in the nation ranked in 9 or more specialties

We are very proud to be recognized among the Top Hospitals in the nation. This recognition validates our efforts to provide an unparalleled level of care to the people of the Gulf South and beyond, while establishing a benchmark for us to measure our continued success.

Today we pause to celebrate and thank all physicians who serve on our medical staff, every nurse, technician, and every colleague affiliated with the Ochsner Health System for your commitment to provide the best care to every patient who comes through our doors.

It's what we call healthcare with peace of mind.
