Increased Access to Care
The ability to care for more patients and their families has increased due to addition of Ochsner physicians on partner hospital staff in the gastro intestinal, cardiology, and cardiovascular surgery disciplines.
Ochsner has recruited additional physicians on staff to further increase capacity and support our strong team. Additional Ochsner physicians include those that focus on primary care, urology, pulmonology, neurosurgery, gastro intestinal and cardiology care.
A comprehensive neuroscience program has been built by Ochsner at St. Tammany Parish Hospital, bringing two Ochsner neurologists onsite to work collaboratively with a multidisciplinary team.
Together with our partners, our long-term commitment will enable us to reduce unnecessary costs so that we can provide more value for patients and employers in this community. This alignment also creates the opportunity to jointly invest the savings realized in new programs and in the expansion of services.
“We strive to bring high-quality cost-effective care to as many people as possible. That’s why we created the Ochsner Health Network; to partner with other leading health systems…to help bring solutions to complex medical challenges while keeping care close to home.”
