Courage has a face.
It also has a name. The people of Ochsner Health.
Undeterred by challenge. Relentless in pursuit of Ochsner’s mission. More than 34,000 strong. In 2021 it was their resilience that propelled us through every challenge — while reaching even higher. Through it all, they persevered. In fact, they triumphed. It was a year powered by their strength, stamina and optimism.

By nearly every measure 2019 was another remarkable year for Ochsner Health, a year of growth and innovation — one when we deepened our commitment to patients and the broader community.
This year was a groundbreaking one for Lafayette General Health. We launched our telemedicine application, Health Anywhere, broke ground on new facilities and began a planned merger with Ochsner Health.
It was a year of remarkable impact for the 811,000 patients from all 50 states and 70 countries who trusted us with their care
In fiscal year 2018, our community helped save a hospital and access to healthcare for over 54,000 people who rely on University Hospital & Clinics annually. When strangers advocate for one another, that is community.
In 2017, our more than 3,000 employed and community physicians served more than 733,000 total patients from all 50 states and more than 60 countries, and our Ochsner physicians provided more than 2 million clinic visits.
Our inspiration to excel comes from one source — the 267,670 patients who trusted us with their care last year. Every day, our community gives us the opportunity to demonstrate our promise to fulfill our mission to restore, maintain and improve health.
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.
Our focus continues to be caring for the Lafayette area, through thick and thin. We continue to be the region's healthcare leader and the brand our community looks to in times of need
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.
This year, we expanded our system while continuing our award-winning service. Not only did we receive recognition for our high-quality care, but we also added more physicians to our staff, provided more graduate medical education, cared for more patients and provided more charity care.
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.
As a regional leader, we continue to provide excellent healthcare closer to home. Our position remains: one system, one belief, ultimately, one human being taking care of another in need.
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.
By expanding our services and facilities, we are reaching more patients, improving patient outcomes and training tomorrow’s doctors, today. This year’s accomplishments prove we are leading with purpose and serving with passion.
