Our team of providers treat injuries and illnesses that are emergency conditions and life-threatening. Our emergency rooms are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week to treat anyone seeking emergency care.
Why Choose Ochsner Health for Emergency Services?
Our emergency medicine team is part of Ochsner Health’s integrated group practice of health care providers. Our physicians from other medical and surgical specialties are on call to assist in determining a plan of care for our patients while they are in the emergency room.
Our doctors and providers evaluate patients who come to our emergency room to determine the severity of their current condition and evaluate if a patient should be admitted. Once our patients are discharged from the emergency department, they are given recommendations for any follow-up care that may be needed.
