Ochsner Health is a system that delivers health to the people of Louisiana, Mississippi and the Gulf South with a mission to Serve, Heal, Lead, Educate and Innovate.
The Ochsner Neuroscience Institute is the destination for neurological care in the Gulf South. Over 100 physicians and APPs - including neurologists and neuropsychologists, neurosurgeons, physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists and many others - bring medical advances, clinical trials and innovations exclusive to our patients and communities. Our program is the largest in the Gulf South for everything from chronic headaches to brain and spinal tumors.
Each year, more than 40,000 patients from across the Gulf South and from 44 different states and 31 countries receive treatment from our nationally-ranked neurological and neurosurgical programs. In 2021, these teams treated 17% more patients than during the year before, including nearly 12,000 virtual visits as connected health options continue to grow.
Ochsner Health is proud to announce the future Debra H. and Robert J. Patrick Neuroscience Center. This 132,000-square-foot facility will soon be home to the nationally ranked Ochsner Neuroscience Institute, bringing 25 national renowned programs under one roof. This will be the only major neuroscience institute between Houston and Atlanta, serving as a catalyst for innovation in the field of neurosciences for the patients of the Gulf South.
