You’re the Reason

Ochsner Health is home to exceptional care — care that radiates passion, skill and an unmatched ability to restore health and improve lives across Louisiana and the Gulf South.

Ours is a mission 80 years in the making, as strong today as it was back in 1942 when Dr. Alton Ochsner and four colleagues opened New Orleans’ first multi-specialty group practice. There are a million reasons, large and small, why we are so committed to this work, with the most important being you.


It all begins with you.

Putting patients first has been fundamental to our culture for the past 80 years. Today, more than ever, we’re committed to ensuring that patients and families can easily access the highest quality of routine and complex care in a compassionate and nurturing environment.


More than 16,000 strong, Ochsner physicians, nurses and advanced practice providers are among the most trusted and respected in medicine.

Rooted in expertise and delivered with compassion, their care embodies the sense of purpose that brought them to the field — to improve lives.


Every life we save, every patient we heal and every family we comfort — it’s only possible through you.

Our passion is the pursuit of excellence. Teamwork gives us strength to overcome every challenge. And our inclusive culture drives us forward.


Providing exceptional patient care is where we begin — but it doesn’t end there.

Our grateful patients and generous donors underpin our ability to serve patients and the broader community. Because of you, Ochsner is making important new strides to save and change lives. We are tackling some of the region’s toughest health challenges through outreach, partnerships and expanded access to care.
