Room Types

Ochsner Medical Center - Kenner is committed to providing the best care possible.

Sometimes that means meeting your special requests, even providing a private room. However, because the health center cannot predict how many patients will require or prefer a private room, these requests cannot always be met.

Patient rooms are assigned daily by the nursing supervisor based on the medical needs of our patients and the availability of rooms. As a result, it may be necessary to place you in a semi-private room or move you from one room to another to provide the type of care your condition requires.

In the event that a room transfer is required and a private room is not available, Ochsner will place your name on a waiting list and move you into a private room as soon as one is available.

Additionally, Ochsner Medical Center - Kenner is unable to make reservations for private rooms in advance.
