About Us

Ochsner Health System has been providing high-quality clinical and hospital patient care to Louisiana residents since 1942. Our healthcare family—today, comprising more than 17,000 employees and over 2,700 affiliated physicians—is driven by our commitment to Serve, Heal, Lead, Educate and Innovate, and that passion is shared with every person who passes through our doors.

A strong foundation

As southeast Louisiana’s largest nonprofit, academic, multispecialty healthcare delivery system, Ochsner is driven by a mission to Serve, Heal, Lead, Educate and Innovate. Coordinated clinical and hospital patient care, all connected electronically to provide convenience for our patients, is provided across the region by Ochsner’s 29 owned, managed and affiliated hospitals and over 60 neighborhood health centers. 

Close collaboration between our clinicians and scientists helps to bring innovative medical discoveries from the laboratory to our patients’ bedsides. We’re deeply dedicated to our patients and are honored to have been the only Louisiana hospital recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a “Best Hospital” across three specialty categories. Ochsner is also a national leader in medical research, conducting more than 1000 clinical research studies every year and producing 200 annual publications in medical literature. We’re one of the largest non-university-based physician training centers in the U.S.
