Ochsner is committed to a clinically-integrated research program with the ultimate goal of improving the health and wellness of our patients and communities. As the largest academic medical center in Louisiana, we are training the next generation of healthcare professionals to be leaders who can meet evolving healthcare challenges.
Ochsner Health and Novant Health, two leading health systems, have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to enter a collaborative partnership, focused on expanding access to care across the southeastern United States for the 65+ population to better meet their healthcare needs.
Cancer patients in the region now have access to cancer treatments that are among the most advanced in the nation. Through this collaboration, Ochsner is the first and only provider in Louisiana with a fully integrated cancer program based on MD Anderson’s standards and treatment plans.
Together, Delgado and Ochsner will leverage the new nursing and allied health center to meet critical workforce demands, provide more opportunities for local graduates in high-wage careers, and proactively pursue the career development of minority and disadvantaged students.
Ochsner partners with Trellis as part of its commitment to workforce development and career advancement, a critical part of the health system’s Healthy State by 2030 initiative. With Ochsner acting as a catalyst, Healthy State partners aim to lift Louisiana out of the bottom of national health rankings by 2030 through clinical and non-clinical initiatives.
Operating out of Benson Tower in downtown New Orleans, Ochsner Ventures was created in 2022 to foster new collaborations, support Ochsner’s emerging healthcare and innovation ecosystem and develop diversified businesses to support Ochsner’s mission and positively impact the communities it serves.
Building on the initial Healthy State commitment, despite obstacles of the pandemic, major hurricanes, and workforce challenges, Ochsner is thrilled to celebrate the recent formation of a 38-member Healthy State Advisory Board, representing 35 organizations spanning multiple sectors, businesses, and industries.
