A Partner of Ochsner Health System
Since 2015, Ochsner Health System and Christus Health Louisiana have been working together to provide residents of Louisiana comprehensive, integrated and innovative care.
Through our long-term strategic partnership with CHRISTUS Health, we are reducing healthcare costs for patients while improving quality and increasing local access to care. More patients are being treated closer to home, while still having access to the nationally recognized specialists and the depth and breadth of care Ochsner is known for.
Some of the new and expanded services at CHRISTUS Health hospitals that have resulted from our partnership include:
- TeleStroke, TelePsych, TeleICU and other TeleHealth Services
- Infectious diseases
- Pediatric cardiology
- Pediatric ophthalmology
By sharing best practices, integrating our technology, building a cross-organizational clinical teamwork model and making joint investment in new physicians and programs, we are able to continue to expand patient services and resources in the region with a relentless focus on quality and value.
