On April 2006, Ochsner Clinic Foundation became Ochsner Health System, the only fully integrated health care provider in the region, and the largest not-for-profit employer in the New Orleans private sector, with nearly 11,000 employees. This designation is more reflective of Ochsner’s broad scope which includes the uniqueness of our coordinated, neighborhood-based health system of medical centers, hospitals, and health centers. by creating a stronger, more unified brand, Ochsner will continue to enhance our awareness, reputation, and prominence in the market and help reinforce the belief that “there is no healthcare organization in the region like Ochsner”. Ochsner strives to help our patients achieve greater peace of mind. “Being a not-for-profit organization allows us to reinvest in the organization, focus on our patients’ needs, and continue our commitment to the community,” explains Dr. Pat Quinlan, CEO. at the heart of Ochsner Health System is an unshakable commitment to putting the needs of all patients first. Ochsner Health Systems continues with its revitalized commitment to making an ongoing difference in the health of our communities.

Continuing the tradition, Ochsner Health System will lead the way to bring you the finest health care.
