Ochsner LSU Health began with a vision to improve the health and well-being of its communities, access to care, quality, and facilities, expand patient-centered technology, grow the medical school, and enhance research in North Louisiana by building on the strengths of Ochsner Health and LSU Health Shreveport.
Ochsner Health brings nationally recognized expertise to the management of operations for the hospitals, clinics and the clinical activity of the faculty physician group. LSU continues to oversee the LSU Health Shreveport School of Medicine, School of Allied Health Professions, School of Graduate Studies, Graduate Medical Education, and research initiatives. The partnership has also expanded research and academics with LSU Health Shreveport, which welcomed its largest class of medical students to date.
Ochsner LSU Health has more than 4,300 employees, 300 contracted positions, and the Ochsner LSU Health Physician Group of approximately 500 physicians in more than 70 specialties and subspecialties. Ochsner LSU Health provides care for common and the most complex medical needs to more than 140,000 patients annually with 600,000 clinic visits last year alone.
Building on the strengths of both partners, we are able to lead our region in healthcare and deliver preventative, primary and acute care services. The power of this partnership has made incredible results for north Louisiana.

As part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) passed in 2010, not-for-profit hospital organizations are required to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) once every three years. The CHNA assesses the health issues within a community and the community’s access to services related to those issues. Learn more about our community health needs assessment.
