About Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport – Academic Medical Center

Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport is a public-private partnership that oversees and coordinates activities between the health sciences center and the healthcare delivery system. At our Academic Medical Center, our doctors and staff members provide advanced healthcare services in a warm, caring environment. We partner with the LSU School of Medicine to:

  • Offer high-quality patient care
  • Advance medical science through research
  • Educate the next generation of leaders in healthcare

We are a 452-bed, fully accredited nonprofit multispecialty hospital, and we accept most insurance plans (more than 40). With more than 400 skilled doctors and specialists on staff, many of whom have practiced medicine on this campus for decades, we are able to meet the healthcare needs of our area’s patients.

Our 24-hour full-service Emergency Department is staffed by board-certified emergency doctors. We have north Louisiana’s only Level 1 trauma center and the first trauma center in the state to be recognized by the Louisiana Emergency Response Network with a pediatric trauma program. We were the first thrombectomy-capable stroke center in Louisiana as designated by The Joint Commission and, in 2019, became the first local hospital awarded the Gold Plus Award and Target Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus Designation by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. We also have the region’s only burn unit that regularly accepts patients from surrounding states who have burn injuries.
