Severe Weather Updates From Ochsner Health System

Ochsner Health Statement

This morning’s severe weather resulted in significant flooding across the area. We will continue to monitor updates from the National Weather Service as well as information and updates from city and parish officials in each of the communities we serve.

At this time, all South Shore facilities are operating normally. As we do with any weather event, the Ochsner Emergency Preparedness & Response team has been working to ensure that the system is prepared.

The safety of our staff and patients is our top priority. We urge everyone to exercise extreme caution and, if possible, avoid local roadways until street flooding subsides.


  • If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911.
  • If you have an appointment and would like to reschedule, please contact your doctor’s office.


  • If you are having difficulties getting to work or facing childcare challenges, please contact your manager or supervisor for assistance.
