Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport is proud to provided the residents of North Louisiana with high-quality, affordable healthcare. We are a local, not-for-profit partner and are driven by our mission to ensure we meet the healthcare needs of the region for years to come. We have a community board and we are community-focused. It is a multi-specialty, academic, not-for-profit integrated healthcare delivery system with three hospitals and neighborhood health centers throughout North Louisiana providing health care close to home.
Our shared mission with Ochsner Health, We Serve, Heal, Lead, Educate, and Innovate, intentionally begins with service. Service to patients, families, employees, and the community is at the heart of all activities. Six “Imperatives” guide our work: Quality, People, Loyalty, Academics, Stability, and Community.
Since its founding, Ochsner has been dedicated to community service. The size and capability of Ochsner Health translates into an ability—and responsibility—to affect the future of the region. In recent years, a concerted effort has been made to plan strategically for how Ochsner can best use the institution’s resources of time, expertise, and funds to affect positive change and build a healthier region. Senior Leadership has identified four principles guiding community outreach at Ochsner:
This project represents an important initiative to identify and explore the ever changing healthcare landscape. It fulfills the requirements of a new federal statute established within the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requiring that nonprofit hospitals conduct CHNA’s every three years. The CHNA process undertaken by Ochsner’s Hospitals, with project management and consultation by Tripp Umbach, included extensive input from persons who represent the broad interests of the communities served by the hospital facilities, including those with special knowledge of public health issues. Tripp Umbach worked closely with senior leadership from each of the hospitals to accomplish the assessment.
