As Ochsner celebrates 75 years of providing the highest quality healthcare to those who live and work in every parish in Louisiana, all 50 states and more than 80 countries across the globe, we reaffirm our commitment to comprehensive, compassionate, individualized treatment. Together, we are leading innovation in healthcare prevention and delivery while educating the very best of our next generation.
Throughout 2015, the entire Ochsner team—from our frontline caregivers to the thousands of individuals who support our operations behind the scenes—have worked with remarkable commitment to help us reach incredible new heights. Together, we are making a real difference in the care we provide and the lives we save.
2014 was a remarkable year at Ochsner, filled with lifesaving outcomes, major milestones and significant accomplishments. Serving patients from all 50 states and 90 countries, Ochsner is increasingly recognized for its abiding commitment to state-of-the-art care. Yet while these accolades are indeed great honors, what really inspires the leaders, physicians and employees of the health system to continue achieving excellence is their commitment to saving and changing lives, one patient at a time.
Patients and other healthcare providers recognize our number one commitment to delivering the highest quality care, our ability to perform groundbreaking procedures and the breadth and depth of the services we offer. Ochsner’s reputation is helping us draw patients from regional, national and international locations.
As evidence of our commitment to quality, we have continued to earn top rankings from prestigious third-party organizations like U.S. News & World Report. The care Ochsner provides is truly recognized as being among the best in the nation.
However, this annual report is more than a listing of awards. Our emphasis is on outcomes, not accolades, and we measure success one patient at a time.
